CEDAR LAKE | Fire Chief Todd Wilkening brought a sample piece of equipment to show the Town Council before that body approved a formal purchase of new airpacks for the department.

The town is spending a little more than $100,000 for the new airpacks, which firemen use on-scene while fighting a fire.

Wilkening brought an air tank and mask to give council members a look at one of the more important pieces of equipment used by firefighters.

The acquisition is a lease-purchase agreement, and while department firefighters will use the packs, the town will own them.
