Richland Hills Pushes In new Engine.

November 2, 2019 – Richland Hills Fire Rescue celebrated their first custom engine with a wet-down/push-in ceremony. Chief Russell Shelley began the ceremony with a brief description of the truck and the tradition of the push-n ceremony, followed by a few words from Mayor, Ed Lopez, and a blessing. Firefighters, their family, friends, VIPs, and citizens were then invited to help wash the new Spartan engine with ceremonial towels. Next, everyone helped push the engine into its bay, and everyone was treated to snacks, hot dogs, and even t-shirts for the kids. Besides the typical features, the engine also has an eye-catching Roto-Ray (spinning) warning light on the front and automatic snow chains!
