Engine 7 is almost ready for business.

On June 12, Dandridge Volunteer Firefighters took delivery of a new $400,000 front line engine. Members of Dandridge Council got their first look at the new apparatus before their meeting Tuesday night. It’s still in the process of being equipped, but will be ready to respond to emergencies soon, said Fire Chief Andy Riley.
