DOTHAN, AL. (WTVY) - The Dothan Fire Department has a new addition to the fleet.

A brand new fire truck arrived Monday morning from northern Alabama.

It comes with advanced life support which the paramedics use to save lives.

It costs more than a half-million dollars.

Firefighters will be installing this new emergency medical equipment over the next week or so.

"Probably this service truck will see a service life of about 20 years in the city of Dothan. It'll spend 12-15 years front line, and what I mean by that is running out of your local firehouses. At that time, it'll be rotated to a local reserve status."

There are nine fire stations in Dothan and around a dozen fire trucks ready to roll throughout the city.
