01/21/10 97 W - + 10 - 13 Selma Gets Grant For Apparatus

FireNews reports that the town of Selma has been awarded a grant by the U.S. Department of Agriculture for $100,000, and which will help buy a $370,000 pumper-tanker to replace an older rig. The town expects to raise another $60,000 through sale of the 11-year-old apparatus, and then take out a $210,000 loan from USDA to cover the remaining balance. The pumper-tanker will have a 1,500 GPM pump, 1,000-gallon tank, and a foam system. Good to hear that the Patron Saint of Grant Awards was watching over our friends in Johnston County.
