ONALASKA, Wis. (WKBT) – The Onalaska Fire Department has a new truck to help their efforts to keep the community safe.

It will be the first truck to respond to home and business fires.
The new addition will help provide a resources as Onalaska continues to grow.
“The advantage of this truck is the maneuverability with the single axle. Some of the developments we have it’s a little bit tighter maneuvering through. And plus having the ladder on top so the guys can set it up quickly,” said Onalaska Fire Department chief Troy Gudie.
It can deliver as much as 1,000 gallons of water per minute.
Department members will train with the truck over the next three weeks before it is put into service.
