Tahoka (TX) VFD Adds Fire Apparatus to Fleet


“We appreciate receiving an HB2604 grant to help purchase our new fleet addition,” said Fire Chief Bryan Reynolds. “The Freightliner chassis with its 1,500-gallon water tank, drop tank of equal volume, 15-gallon foam tank and front bumper water monitor is an upgrade from the truck it is replacing.”  

Reynolds states that the new tender can carry three firefighters, will be safer and gives them greater access to fires in difficult areas of their rough terrain.
