HINDS COUNTY, MS (WLBT) -

The Hinds County Board of Supervisors has approved the purchase of five 2015 model tanker/pumper trucks.

According to Hinds Co. Fire Coordinator, Ricky Moore, the purchase of these trucks will enhance the ability of the volunteer firefighters to reduce property loss throughout Hinds County and will help to reduce fire ratings from a Class 10 to a Class 8 in some areas. 

The trucks will be delivered sometime in the summer and assigned to the Volunteer Fire Departments located in Terry, Bolton, Raymond, Utica and Brownsville.

This 1.3 million dollar purchase is the largest ever made by Hinds County officials. 

These funds are a combination of state and local monies designated for fire services.
