Even though the purchase of an aerial fire truck was approved for the Culver-Union Township Fire Department, the firefighters continue to collect donations to close a small funding gap to fully fund the purchase.
The Rosenbauer 100-foot low-profile Viper Aerial Fire Truck will be purchased at a price of about $1,008,000. The funds are coming from the Town of Culver, Union Township, Culver Academies, and as many as 125 donors.
Fire Chief Terry Wakefield previously said the aerial truck will replace a 1996 pumper truck. The pumper truck will be sold after receipt of the aerial truck.
There is about $37,500 that still needs to be raised to assist in the goal.
