SPRING VALLEY - A huge budget approval will allow the Spring Valley Fire Department to finally get some much-needed equipment upgrades.

On Tuesday night, the village passed a $1.3 million budget to update dangerously outdated gear and firetrucks.

Officials say the bond was repeatedly postponed, leaving firefighters at risk. News 12 is told that the "yes" vote came about after the safety and health bureau of the state Department of Labor stepped in to help facilitate the proceedings.

The new gear won't be in operation for another three months.
