Kenny Riley, Graysville Fire Department's district Fire Chief, demonstrates the controls in the middle of the newer fire truck that was placed into service in January. Riley said that having the newer truck allowed them to evaluate the entire scene without leaving their position. Previously, the department had used a 1965 fire truck with right-side panels, which prohibited their view. County Executive George Thacker had worked with officials to obtain the updated fire truck last December from New Jersey.
