Kodak-Northview VFD receives new fire engine

(WBIR - Sevier County) The Kodak Volunteer Fire Department Friday welcomed a new set of wheels to its fleet.

Kodak VFD's held a dedication ceremony for its new fire engine and is now in service. The truck was designed with the department in mind, which firefighters said will help them speed up their response time.

Members of the department said the event is special because they typically don't get new engines.

"Most of what we've had has been hand-me-downs, stuff that we've built over the years and kept on the road," said Daniel Willis, "but we got a great opportunity to go and get a new engine. So this is brand new, 2014. It's something that we're not used to, but we're very excited to have in the community."

Willis also pointed out all the support the department has received from the community over the years, saying it would not be up and running without help from residents.
