Announcing a New Fire Truck for the Elkmont Volunteer Fire Department

LIMESTONE COUNTY, Ala. (WHNT) – The City of Elkmont celebrated the announcement of an all-new fire truck for the Elkmont Volunteer Fire Department.

The department is able to replace one of its old fire engines thanks to a $92,000 loan from the United States Department of Agriculture to Limestone County. This loan is for various investments in rural public safety and community infrastructure.

Deputy Fire Chief Michael Carter said the department is excited about the new vehicle.

“It means a lot, it improves our equipment, what we can do. It will also help us and the community by being able to carry more water for house fires as we go,” Carter told News 19 during the celebration.

With the new truck, the fire department will now have three trucks that can respond to calls.
