A $199,000 2021 International medium pumper is now in service with the Nesbit (MS) Fire Department, according to a report published by The DeSoto Times-Tribune.

Housed at Nesbit Fire Station 17, the new truck will replace an existing apparatus that is 25 years old and will help the community maintain a favorable insurance rating, the newspaper reported.

The truck, which was purchased with $90,000 from the State Rural Fire Truck Fund, is designed to specifically provide access to rural areas that might be hard to reach with full-size apparatus, according to the newspaper.

Additional funding came from the taxpayers, insurance rebates and donations, the newspaper reported.
