FAIRFIELD — Fairfield firefighters showed up early to Tuesday’s City Council meeting to show off their new fire engines.
The two new vehicles replace engines the department bought in 1995 and 1997. The old engines were white, and the new ones are red and black, which now makes the entire Fairfield fleet red and black.
Among the new features of the engines are computerized emissions control and anti-roll systems.
