The Austintown Fire Department was the first in Mahoning County to get a new multipurpose “first responder” truck 25 years ago. The truck was equipped with the Jaws of Life extrication tool, traditional fire-fighting tools and special equipment to respond to accidents involving hazardous materials.

Dan Martin, at right, stores absorbent materials used in chemical spills into a compartment on the side of the truck.
