WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- It was out with the old, and in with the new today.

The Wilmington Fire Department welcomed a new truck for station No. 5.

Crews pushed the old truck out of the bay and then pushed the new one in, all by hand.

The fire department says the new truck is much safer with improved braking and suspension systems as well as air bags.

Firetruck

That must be the one that cost the city Police Officers their pay raises that the Fire Chief took the money behind the Cheatems desk. I am glad they have the new fire truck. And I am so proud that the City council supports Cheatem. Maybe, Cheatem will give the Police Officers a pay raise, instead of buying a Fire Truck that they could have revamped the older ones. Either way, give the City Employees at least a 5 percent pay raise across the board. Not only to the few and the ones that Kiss someones butt to get promoted!

Wow! Bitter? Police are

Wow! Bitter? Police are getting 12 new officers. All my tax dollars pay for either police or fire. Not quite sure where you are going with all that resentment, but you need to let it go a little. There are a lot of people out in the world that wouldn't mind your police officer salary.
