The Plains (VA) Volunteer Fire Company was able to purchase a new pumper-tanker thanks to $769,000 in private donations from area residents, reports Fauquier.com.
The new apparatus can hold 2,500 gallons of water and seats more firefighters than the old truck.
Funds for the apparatus were raised over the course of about a year, with major donations coming from: Jacqueline Mars, Lisa and Zohar Ben Dov, Milton Sender, The Jenco Foundation, Luciana and Robert Duvall, Andrea Currier, and the heirs of Richard Ohrstrom.
