The Broadway Volunteer Fire Department has added the national motto, "In God We Trust," to their firetrucks.

The fire chief came up with the idea, and many of the older members said they really liked it. A few months ago, they brought the idea to the department. The whole department voted unanimously to add the decals to the sides of their six trucks.

The owner of Trans Tech Towing offered to pay for the decals, which means no public donations were used for them. The decals were added to the trucks last week.

"I would suspect that the community appreciates it," said David Emswiler, who works with the department. "I think we have so much diversity right now and so much strife going on in our country and across the world, I think it says something about where our values are really at."

Emswiler said adding the decals is personal for each member.

"They all seem to be very thankful that we have them on, they seem to be very positive about it. I think each member has their own personal reasons why they maybe think it's a good idea," he added.

So far the bit of feedback they have received has been positive.
