East Lee County High School's Fire Academy is excited to announce they have received a generous donation of a fire truck. The donation of the 1998 Pierce Saber Fire Engine was approved by the North Fort Myers Fire Control & Rescue Services District Commissioners Board and Fire Chief David Rice.

The East Lee County High School's Fire Academy will use the fire truck to teach recruits hands-on, practical skills required in order to obtain certification. The school also plans to use the new fire engine to bring awareness to the East Lee County High School's Fire Academy during parades.
