QUITMAN FIRE PROTECTION DISTRICT NO. 1 ORDERS FOUR NEW TRUCKS
Quitman, Louisiana (September 25, 2017) ‐ The Quitman Fire Protection District No. 1 announced the order of four 3,000-gallon pumper/tanker trucks manufactured by Fouts Bros Fire Equipment of Smyrna, GA. The 2018 model year trucks are new additions to the District’s fleet of emergency service vehicles. The first of the new apparatus will be placed in service in October with three following early next year. The new apparatus will be housed at each of the District’s four stations. The District paid cash for one truck and was able to order an additional three identical units by utilizing a tax-exempt lease purchase structure with a ten-year repayment term.
“We have used Government Capital Corporation for two previous financings. The lease purchase financing process is painlessly easy. Marti Sauls and D.C. Greer are easy to work with and bend over backwards to help. I am relieved that I have trucks ordered and money in the bank to pay for them. I’ve been very pleased. GCC is my first choice.” stated Philip Brown, Fire Chief for the District.
D.C. Greer, Vice President of Government Capital Corporation, stated “It has been truly an honor to work with the Quitman Fire Protection District over the years. Their outstanding leadership and organization makes our job much easier.”
