Water Witch Hose Company of New Milford has signed contracts for two new trucks, which the volunteer firefighters hope to have in service by the end of the year. The new tower 25 will replace a 1989 Aerial Cat which has served New Milford for 30 years. Water Witch Hose applied for the 2017 FEMA assistance for firefighters grant, which was awarded in July. The over $900,000 is funding the majority of the $1.2 million apparatus. The balance was funded by the town of New Milford. The new Engine 27 will replace a 1992 freight-liner. The smaller, conventional style cab and short wheelbase will allow firefighters easier access to rural back roads and tighter neighborhoods.
