Perdido Beach, Alabama (February 2019) – The Perdido Beach Volunteer Fire Department recently acquired a 2005 Pierce Dash 100’ foot platform aerial fire truck. The purchase allows the department to better serve our constitutents and adds the capability to assist in automatic mutual aid with three other departments for commercial structures. Perdido Beach VFD worked with Brindlee Mountain Fire Apparatus as the equipment provider. The department selected Government Capital Corporation as the most cost effective funding solution for the purchase.
“This was our first financing experience,” stated Chief Ken Wright. “The staff at Government Capital stepped us through the entire process and made it easy to understand. Their experience was a great value to our overall project. Without the financing option, we would not have been able to purchase the truck. We had the opportunity to meet D.C. Greer, who took time to come by and visit with us while in our area.”
“The department provided the required information for processing in a timely manner, making the process flow smoothly. It was a pleasure working with the department providing financing which met their budget needs. The enhanced service reliability and functional capabilities of the new aerial should meet the needs of the department 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
