CRESTVIEW — The Crestview Fire Department has a new vehicle in its fleet following a local automobile dealer’s donation.

On Dec. 21, Hub City Ford of Crestview donated $7,500 to the Crestview Fire Department. This donation aided the department’s purchase of a 2017 Ford Expedition.

The red vehicle appeared in the Crestview Christmas Parade, which was held Dec. 2 in downtown Crestview.

"Hub City Ford is proud to support the hardworking men and women of the Crestview Fire Department," a media release for the company states.

"We at Hub City Ford are dedicated to supporting the needs of our community," Chris Daggs, the auto dealer’s general manager, said.

"This is our way of giving back to ‘family.’"
