BUFFALO, N.Y. -- The city of Buffalo added two new firetrucks to its fleet Friday with some very special guests at the dedication.
The two new pumpers were purchased with city bond funds for $700,000. One will be serving Engine 33 on Fillmore Avenue, and the other Engine 22 on Broadway.
The trucks were dedicated in memory of Firefighter Michael Seguin who died in the line of duty more than 15 years ago.
His family said today that Buffalo's bravest are deserving of this state-of-the-art equipment.
"We have the best, let's give them the best. I know it's an effort. I know it's a lot of money. But they're there for us, we need to be there for them and I'm very appreciative," said Michael's Father, Larry Seguin.
The Seguin family years ago pushed for the department to buy its first thermal imaging camera. Now with the city's latest purchase, every firetruck in the city is equipped with the lifesaving tool.
