According to a report from KLTV, Smith County (TX) Emergency Services District 2 and the Bullard (TX) Volunteer Fire Department (BVFD) have a new Piece PUC engine. The purchase is part of the capital improvement plan to replace the district’s aging equipment.
The new engine is up-to-date with modern firefighting technology and features a compressed air foam system and the ability to carry 1,000 gallons of water, which is an upgrade over the 500-gallon capacity of the previous engine. BVFD firefighters are now completing training on the new engine’s operations.
The BVFD will commence with a traditional “push-in” ceremony at Bullard Fire Station No 1, located at 213 S. Houston Street, this Sunday, February 7, at 2:00 p.m. The public and media are invited to the event. However, social distancing and masks will be required.
