The Polk County Emergency Management Services took delivery of a new Ford F150 truck last week that required no local funding. The truck was obtained through Homeland Security funding given to Domestic Preparedness Region 9 (DPR9), which include Polk County. Trucks were funded through the grant for Polk, Jackson and Mitchell counties. The truck is equipped with radios, emergency response lights and a rollback for towing to be used in emergency management situations both locally and within the DPR 9 region. (photo by Leah Justice)
