JC Fire Department decides no trucks in parades

JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. -

The Johnson City Fire Department recently decided to no longer have fire trucks driving in parade routes.

We've learned it's  safety precaution because parades were becoming dangerous having children near their trucks.

The change is also an effort to maintain response time to emergency calls.
