"We are thrilled," said Carl DeCarlo, ECC unit adjunct faculty and instructional coordinator for fire science and safety. "We will honor this donation by using the truck to train the next generation of firefighters."

The used truck will be incorporated in the fire science curriculum to train students on how to drive and pump the fire engine.

As the college begins its fall semester, DeCarlo says the donation could not have come at a better time.

He adds the donation allows the program to put its funds toward other necessary purchases.
