The Warren County Career Center's protective services program has a new tool at it's disposal, a real firetruck.
Thanks to a donation from the Sheffield Township Supervisors and the Sheffield Volunteer Fire Department, students in the class will be able to train with a vehicle similar to what firefighters use in the field.
Following Sheffield's purchase of a new 2012 E-One Water Master, the township no longer needed their circa 1980 truck. On Wednesday morning, Aug. 22, the township presented the career center with the vehicle.

Koebley Motors volunteered to tow the truck free of charge.
The price range for working, 1980s-era firetrucks are listed in various locations online for tens of thousands of dollars.
"It is the hope of the supervisors and the Sheffield VFD that this will help in the training of much needed firemen around the county," according to an e-mail from the township.
