Copperopolis Fire Gets New Water Tender

Copperopolis, CA — The Copperopolis Fire District is receiving a new water tender thanks to a hefty contribution by the county.

The Board of Supervisors decided Monday to give $150,000 towards the purchase.

The district has already paid for the tender, which cost about $230,000.

District officials say the rig is awaiting radios to be installed and will be ready for the upcoming fire season.
