When three new fire trucks rolled into DeKalb earlier this
month, Kemper County Emergency Management executive director Ben Dudley
said it gave each of the county's nine volunteer fire departments "a
fairly new frontline pumper."
The three new trucks, which were
assigned to the Kemper Springs, New Hope and Preston Volunteer Fire
Departments, cost a combined $731,435, with $210K of that expected to be
refunded to the county through the Rural Fire Truck Acquisition
