SLOCOMB, Ala. (WDHN) — In the coming days, approximately 1,200 Slocomb water customers will receive a flyer accompanied by their monthly bill.

Slocomb Fire and Rescue is asking its residents to chip in and donate at least one to two dollars monthly to the department along with their normal payment.

The funds will be earmarked to replace fire engine 4, a pumper truck that has served for almost 34 years and has reached its end.

Chief Kyle Hovey says it’s important to get a new truck not only for the city but will help in fighting mutual aid fires.

If citizens would like to donate to a new fire truck, they can fill out the flyer, which will come in the mail with their water bill, and drop it off at Slocomb City Hall, or at the water board office.
