Blackman’s Crossroads FD To Purchase New Rescue Pumper

The Blackman’s Crossroads Volunteer Fire Department has received unanimous approval from Johnston County Board of Commissioners for a tax-exempt loan.

The fire department will borrow $518,000 from First Citizens Bank for the purchase of a 2018 E-One E-Max rescue pumper truck.

First Citizens offered better terms than Four Oaks Bank and the LGFCU for the loan.  File photo by John Payne
