Cairo Volunteer Fire Department Receives New Truck

Cairo Volunteer Fire Department took delivery Tuesday of a new fire truck. The new truck will aid the department in providing fire and rescue services and could help lower their current fire rating of a Class 8 which would reduce insurance costs for residents. The truck was purchased using a combination of funds with $30,000 from the fire department, $50,000 in grant funds from USDA Rural Development, $70,000 from the Mississippi Rural Fire Truck Acquisition Assistance Program and a $100,000 appropriation from the state legislature.
