|Crowville Fire District gets new equipment|
The Crowville Fire District took delivery of its second new truck in five years last week when a new 1500-gallon pumper arrived.
The specialty vehicle, manufactured by Ferrara of Holden, sports the traditional fire engine red color on a custom made frame with a Kenworth cab at a cost of about $180,000.
The fire district, which has been operational for the last 20 plus years, first purchased from the specialty manufacturer in 2003.
According to Don Middleton, secretary-treasurer of the district, funds for the new truck came from three different sources: the state, which will contribute about $60,000, Federal Emergency Management Agency, which will add about $80,000 and the fire district, which will add about $40,000.
The all volunteer Crowville Fire Department was formed as a charter organization in the late 1980's as a step for area residents to obtain and afford insurance coverage. It operates four stations ranging from the town of Crowville to just below the Richland Parish line to the north.
A number of fire district and town officials were on hand to welcome the truck to its new home last week.
