Stockton, CA to get two new fire engines | Community
The FEMA Assistance to Firefighters Grant requires $200,000 match from Stockton, bringing the total to $1 million, the city's spokeswoman Connie Cochran said.
With six new engines now en route to Stockton this year, Fire Chief Jeff Piechura said he will also change up his department's approach to how it responds to some calls.
In the next 18 months, he will begin sending smaller, less expensive vehicles out to calls of illnesses and minor injuries. The large, expensive firefighting equipment will stay put until it's needed.
