New fire truck pushed into station

Spokane Valley Fire had a successful housing ceremony for its new Rescue 8 truck last week at Station 8 on Wilbur Road. A big crowd turned out to help push the truck into the station. The ceremony dates back to the days of horse-drrawn fire equipment that had to be pushed into the station by firefighters and neighbors since the horses couldn't back up the wagons. The department's honor guard and pipe and drum corp provided musical accompaniment for the pushing effort.
