Panama City, FL – Panama City Beach Fire Rescue pushes-in new engine

Panama City, FL –

PANAMA CITY BEACH, Florida (WMBB) – Panama City Beach Fire Rescue held a ceremony Friday morning for their new engine which is now entering service.

The tradition dates back to the mid-1800s, old fire engines were pulled by horses. Firefighters had to manually push in the steam engines.

Chief Ray Morgan said firefighters continue the tradition of honoring the brothers and sisters who came before them, and they did so with the help of Panama City Beach council members.

This addition to the fire department will be its third frontline engine, as well as a ladder truck and two backup engines.

“Our men and women are giving 100%, and it means a lot to pass that on to the next generation in the future, and that there is value in our history and lessons to be learned from our history,” Morgan said.

This device has a more reliable motor than the motor it replaced. It also has collision avoidance technology, in-cab airbags, and an alert system to notify those using GPS map apps that the fire truck is on duty and responding to an emergency.
