New Ladder Truck 2 for Mason Square Fire Station is Named and Blessed

Mayor Domenic J. Sarno joined Springfield Fire Commissioner BJ Calvi and students from Glickman Elementary School on the morning of Friday, November 30th as a new fire truck was named and blessed. Chaplain Father Gary Dailey blessed the Pierce Ladder Truck, which displays the SFD's new colors of red and black, a nod to their apparatus of the past. It cost $1,027,372.

The truck will be stationed at the Mason Square Fire Station and will serve the neighborhood surrounding Glickman.

Recently a “name the new fire truck” contest was done with the school’s fourth graders. Student Jeshuanys Quinones-Gauthier won the contest with the name “Springfield Warrior”. She received a gift bag from Mayor Sarno, a framed certificate from Commissioner Calvi and a ride in the truck.
