Wisconsin Indianhead Technical College added a new fire truck to its fleet equipped with the most updated technology. The fire truck will give firefighters the opportunity to practice the skills they need to safely do their job.

“This is a major investment in our fire services training program,” Tim Halbur, WITC fire services director, said. “Acquiring the fire engine will improve our classes and help us to better prepare firefighters to serve their communities.”

Training is available for various skill levels ranging from entry level to more advanced classes. Fire departments will be able to use the new fire truck as part of their training and in conjunction with their own apparatus to practice real-life scenarios.

“The fire truck will improve firefighters and civilian safety by allowing students to practice critical skills,” Halbur said.

WITC will provide a qualified operator of the fire truck for any classes where the truck is used.
