The Harrison County Fire Department received one of two new fire trucks Monday afternoon at the Oddville station. With a price tag of $176,727, the truck is the first fire truck purchased since 1998. The truck was purchased by the county’s special tax district fund. “We’re hoping that this will help us improve our ISO testing,” said firefighter James McCarty. An improved ISO rating would possibly help homeowners lower insurance costs, McCarty said. The new fire truck will be responding to runs by the end of March, said fire chief Charlie Carson.

The county fire department will receive their second new truck in August.
