Florence's fire department will get two brand new fire trucks in a year.

The City Council voted on Tuesday to buy a ladder and a pumper truck at a cost of more than $1 million.

A Shoals firefighter previously told WAFF 48 News that many of the firetrucks kept breaking down, leaving multiple stations with only sport utility vehicles to respond to calls.
