West Jordan Fire welcomed two new fire trucks with pomp and circumstance.
A bagpiper and flag ceremony welcomed the crowd. Firefighters hosed down a truck and city council, and firefighters physically pushed the truck into its new home.
“This tradition dates back into the late 1800s,” West Jordan Fire Chief Derek Maxfield said. “When fire companies got a new set of horses, they would wash down those horses and get them ready to go.”
