Maury County Safety Committee has approved more than $300,000 in grant funding to purchase a new fire truck and an assisting vehicle, reports The Daily Herald.
The Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation Grant covers half of the $661,177 required to cover the purchases.
The purchase will replace a fire truck that overturned in February during a snowstorm. The fire department is also moving forward with plans for a new fire station. Preliminary plans for the facility will include a wood-framed fire house and a pre-engineered metal building to serve as a four-door bay for the operation’s fire engine and resources.
