The Madawaska Valley Fire Department finally has its new tanker truck.

The truck was delivered on Friday, but despite being overdue Madawaska Valley Fire Chief Corwin Quade says it was well worth the wait.

Quade also says that updating the fire department’s fleet was something that was much needed.

The truck was originally scheduled to be delivered on April 1st, 2017.
