Stratford’s Engine 1, one of two fire trucks heavily damaged when struck by two tractor-trailers on Interstate 95 Jan. 7, can be repaired, according to Fire Marshal Brian Lampart.
Lampart said the town is seeking an estimate for repair work to the truck, which is the departments newest apparatus, a 2008 Smeal pumper.
Meanwhile, the department is waiting on a damage assessment for Engine 5, a 2000 Pierce Saber pumper.
The trucks, made by different manufacturers, are currently out of commission. The replacement value of each truck is about $420,000, Lampart has said.
The crash occurred about 8:30 p.m. during a snow storm on the southbound side of I-95 near Exit 30. Six firefighters suffered minor injuries and were treated at Bridgeport Hospital.
