The search for the “Spirit of Oklahoma” firetruck in NYC

Because the FDNY sent 10 experts in building collapse to help in the aftermath of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing, the people of Oklahoma sent a new firetruck, the Spirit of Oklahoma, to NY after the city lost 90 pieces of apparatus in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.

Some of the givers wanted to know where the truck was 16 years later. Deanne Stein of Oklahoma News 9 spoke to some of them about how they found the Spirit of Oklahoma.

Please note that the article gives incorrect numbers of those killed in the 9/11 attacks.
