The vehicle, which has 100,000 miles on it and was used by Cataldo field supervisors, will allow shift commanders to respond to fire emergencies, according to Melrose Fire Chief John O’Brien.

“The shift commanders right now don’t have a vehicle,” O’Brien said. “They ride with one of the engines or a brush truck … G&T Auto Body on Tremont Street painted [the donated truck] no charge to the city, which was a huge savings. We’re excited about it. Times are tight.”

Dennis Cataldo, vice president of the Somerville-based company, said Cataldo routinely donates older vehicles to communities such as Saugus and Malden and has also donated ambulances to third world countries.

We do donate equipment, especially if they’re the type of vehicles that don’t have a lot of resale value to them, given that they’ve been outfitted for emergency type use,” Cataldo said.
