City of La Porte (TX) Sells Fire Apparatus to School

The City of La Porte has sold one of its decommissioned vehicles to San Jacinto College for $1.

Students at the college’s Firefighter Training Academy will now have another fire truck to use for hands-on training.

La Porte sold them a $1 fire truck back in March as well. This new emergency vehicle is a little more advanced than that one though.

The academy prepares students to take the Texas Commission on Fire Protection Basic Suppression exam, which opens them up to entry-level firefighter positions across Texas. Each school year there are three academy classes with about 24 future firefighters taking the course.
