Residents can soon expect to see a lot of the new Engine 1 around town.

LITTLETON — Residents can soon expect to see a lot of the new Engine 1 around town. During an open house on Saturday, Littleton Fire Rescue debuted the 2022 Pierce fire engine, which was authorized by residents at the 2021 town meeting and was custom-made during this past winter and spring to meet the specific needs of the community. For firefighters, it’s the town’s first new fire engine in three decades, and the difference between the engines of those days and the new Engine 1 is like night and day. After 10 months of building the truck from the ground up at the Pierce truck factory in Wisconsin, Engine 1 arrived in Littleton in early June.
