Dickson County officials are planning to buy six new pumpers for rural fire departments in the Dickson County Fire Rescue district, according to a report published by the Tennessean.

The county commissioners approved the purchase earlier this month and agreed to buy the pumpers at a cost of about $275,000 each, according to the paper, which added that the trucks will have 1,500-gpm pumps and 1,000-gallon tanks.

To pay for the new apparatus, the county will borrow $1.7 million on a two-year note, the paper reported.

The six departments slated to get the apparatus include Claylick, Cumberland Furnace, Dickson County Fire and Rescue, Harpeth Ridge, Sylvia-Yellow Creek and Tennessee City.

The vehicles will be owned by the county for 10 years and leased to the departments due to the borrowing arrangements, the paper reported.
