A fire truck that will be housed at Evansville Fire Station #1 was dedicated to a fallen hero this afternoon.
Captain James Pauli Jr. was a 28-year-veteran who spent countless hours serving our community.
It’s a tradition for the department to put the name of their fallen heroes on the sides of a fire truck.
Captain Pauli’s father also had a fire truck dedicated to him, but that truck has since retired.
This is one of the only father-son duos to have an Evansville fire truck dedicated to them.
