New Chief, New Truck

October 10, 2007 - Heather Ziegler
Wheeling's new fire chief, Larry Helms, is taking the reins of the department at an exciting time. Not only is it the pinnacle of his firefighting career, he gets a new firetruck to boot. The fire department took possession of its latest technological masterpiece in fighting fires. A new platform truck is moving into headquarters, replacing a nearly quarter-century old model that is still operational thanks to the diligence of the department's vehicle mechanics. The older truck will remain on the job, serving the Woodsdale area and beyond. It replaces an EVEN older ladder truck that is being retired. As for the department, word on the street is it's closer than ever to having its first female member. Time and tests will tell.
