The 2013 Spartan fire engine came from South Dakota and cost $433,000, according to Snohomish County Fire District 4 in Snohomish.
It replaced a 1995 International engine that will become a reserve vehicle.
The ceremony, called a “push in,” has firefighters hand-pushing a new vehicle backward into the fire station. The ceremony dates back to when fire departments used horse-drawn rigs.
The engine will be assigned to the Three Lakes Station, 6724 171st Ave. SE.
