With the help of funding from a grant, the Hickory Flat (MS) Fire Department has taken delivery of a new pumper, according to an article published by the Southern Sentinel newspaper.

The paper said that Mississippi Representative Steve Massengill helped secure a grant for $250,000 for the new truck that was purchased from Sunbelt Apparatus, a fire truck dealer based in Alabama.

The truck was purchase by a joint effort from Hickory Flat and Benton County which made up the difference not covered by the grant, the paper reported.
