The Peebles Fire Department added a new piece of apparatus to their fleet in August when the Meigs Township Trustees purchased a 2000 Central States engine from the Anderson Township Trustees (Clermont County) in the amount of $45,000.
The engine is housed at Station 15 in Peebles, and will respond to motor vehicle accidents, rescue operations, and second-alarm structure fires.  This will replace a 1987 Sutphen engine, giving department members safer, more effective equipment to operate during a response to our community members in need.
The purchase of this truck will help prevent tax rate increases for taxpayers in the future.  The Peebles Fire Department would like to thank the Meigs Township Trustees, the taxpayers of Meigs Township, and the village of Peebles for helping make the purchase possible.
