Ravenna to Acquire New Fire Truck

Posted: Updated:

The city of Ravenna is planning to buy a new fire truck to replace the city's current, unsafe truck with money from a USDA Rural Development grant.

The $37,000 grant will be added to $212,500 from the city for the purchase.

"We are very pleased to receive this grant. It will help us to better serve the community and surrounding area," said Ravenna Mayor Peg Dethlefs.

Roberta Mues, community programs specialist with USDA Rural Development, said the new fire truck will help keep the city's firefighters safe. She said, "Fires are very dangerous. Time is essential thus having a top functioning vehicle is vital."

The grant was provided through funds from the Community Facility Grant program. For more information about the grant program, go to http://www.rurdev.usda.gov/NEHome.html.
