NATCHITOCHES FIRE PROTECTION DISTRICT NO. 4 ORDERS THREE NEW TRUCKS
Provencal, Louisiana (August 2017) – The Natchitoches Parish Fire Protection District No. 4 announced the order of three 3000 gallon pumper/tanker trucks manufactured by Fouts Bros Fire Equipment of Smyrna, GA. The 2018 model year trucks replace three trucks with model years ranging from 1982 to 1986. The new apparatus will be placed in service early next year. The District selected a tax exempt lease purchase contract structured by Government Capital Corporation as the most cost effective option for financing the purchase.
“The 12 year term provided by Government Capital Corporation allowed us the budget flexibility to afford three badly needed trucks. Additionally, the financing structure permitted us to avoid the cost and delay associated with traditional debt financing,” stated James Dupree, Assistant Fire Chief for the District.
“The enhanced service reliability and functional capabilities of the new tankers should meet the needs of the District constituents for many years. We take great pride in being able to provide financings that enable first responders to serve their communities better,” stated D.C. Greer, Vice President of Government Capital Corporation.
