TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - The Terre Haute Fire Department will be getting some new fire engines to replace the current aging ones.

The Board of Public Works and Safety approved a plan that will take place over the next five years.

The plan allows the fire department to enter a contract with Pierce Fire Engines.

They will buy two fire engines now. Those trucks will be ready by this time next year.

Two more will be ready in 2021.

The last two engines will be purchased in 2024.

All of the current engines have more than 200,000 miles on them.

Ambulance fees will cover the costs of these new fire engines.
