USDA Investing in Kansas Fire Departments

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is investing $3.51 million to equip, rebuild, and modernize essential services in rural Kansas, reports ksal.com, with $565,000 going to fire departments in Mount Pleasant Township and the cities of Humboldt and Altamont.

The specifics include:

  • Altamont– A $260,000 loan will be used to purchase a commercial truck for use by the city of Altamont and Mount Pleasant Township. The apparatus will replace the old 1995 truck which has reached the end of its useful life.
  • Humboldt– A $50,000 grant and a $255,000 loan will be used to purchase a custom pumper. The new, foam-ready apparatus is a diesel, automatic transmission with twice the equipment storage capacity as its 27-year-old predecessor. In addition, it is foam ready.
