WFD rolls out old engine, rolls in new


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.
