NORWICH – At Tuesday night’s meeting of the Finance and Personnel Committee, acting Fire Chief Joseph Angelino and Assistant Chief Jan Papalino discussed the Norwich Fire Department’s need for new equipment.
In an October meeting of the Public Works and Public Safety Committee, Angelino had informed the committee two new fire trucks would be needed within the next year. Tuesday, Angelino told the committee one truck had just been returned after receiving some repairs. “It hasn’t been in service in over a year, and it needs quite a bit of equipment,” he said.
Papalino told the committee the additional equipment would probably cost between $9,000 and $10,000.
