TUSKEGEE, AL (WSFA) -

The city of Tuskegee has received a new ladder truck with the help of a grant.

The $675,000 fire truck is a replacement for a 1984 model ladder truck that is retiring.

The new truck was made possible through a FEMA grant of $642,857. The city matched 5 percent of the grant and gave $32,143 towards the new truck.

The 75-foot ladder truck comes with a thermal image camera, a first for the city, and will help with homeowners' ISO ratings.

The city also received a $300,000 FEMA grant for a pumper truck. It's expected to be delivered in 2017.
