A small volunteer fire department along the Florida/Alabama line has received an early Christmas gift.
Esto Fire Chief Charles Corcoran says the new mini-pumper will be a great asset to his department as well as surrounding communities.
The chief believes it'll give his firefighters a dependable vehicle when responding to an emergency.
"Both ends of Alabama, Florida, Jackson, Holmes counties faster more reliable to get to fires that we may face," said Chief Corcoran.
Esto's coverage area stretches more than 85 square miles going into adjoining Geneva, Jackson and Walton counties.
