0716 OTT old fire truck color photo -T -M

The Ottumwa Fire Department's oldest fire truck, a 1977 American LaFrance Snorkel, was pulled out of service last month. The truck suffers from several problems, including leaking hydraulic fluid, an open-air cab (a safety issue for firefighters) and a lack of a water pump and water tank. The OFD has asked the city council for approval to purchase a new truck.
