BROKEN ARROW, Okla. — The Broken Arrow Fire Department on Friday placed two new trucks into service during a wash-in ceremony.

The ceremony, dating back to the 1880s, involved firefighters wetting the new trucks and backing them into the station to be dried by hand.

The new $1 million ladder trucks will replace older trucks at Stations 2 (near Aspen Avenue and the Creek Turnpike) and 6 (near Nienhuis Park).

One truck was funded by the General Obligation funds, and other was funded through the Sales Tax Capital Improvement funds.
