CLAY — The Center Point Fire District dedicated the new Engine 4 on Sunday, Nov. 17.
A partnership with the city of Clay, Sen. Linda Coleman-Madison and Rep. Danny Garrett, made it possible for the fire district to purchase a new engine. The new engine was unveiled at halftime during Clay-Chalkville High School’s football game against Pell City, in October.
During the dedication ceremony, Chief Gene Coleman spoke about the importance of the new engine. Also on hand for the ceremony was Jefferson County Commissioner Joe Knight, Clay Mayor Charles Webster, Clay City Manager Ronnie Dixon and city council members Bo Johnson and Dennis Locke. The crowd enjoyed cake and prayed over the new engine.
Firefighters trained on the new engine, throughout the week, at Clay-Chalkville High School, the Clay Ballpark and other locations.
