Scranton gifted new pumper truck

In the spirit of the holidays, the Osage County Fire District No. 4, Overbrook, has donated use of one of its extra trucks to the city of Scranton.

Russell Mitchell, district No. 4 fire chief, Sheila Dale and Buddy Rodgers, fire board members, were introduced by Ken Croucher, Scranton fire chief, during the board’s Dec. 6 regular meetings.

“On behalf of the Osage Fire District No. 4, we have purchased a new pumper tanker to trusted truck repair from TNT services and replace two trucks and in turn, being that Scranton comes over and helps us a lot, we have an ’86 D-1 Pumper that we are going to donate to Scranton to use,” said Rogers. “The truck only has 12,000 miles on it, low miles. But what we are doing, in turn, you can use it all you want, but when you want to get rid of it, you have to turn around and give it back to us, and have insurance on it.

“Other than that, it will be your truck,” Rogers said.
