The Texas A&M Forest Service has provided a 1986 Oshkosh AS32P19A truck to the Rio Bravo Volunteer Fire Department, reports LMTonline.
The truck will mainly be used for brush fires and structure fires. A fire official said that the truck will be essential to use in narrow areas where the city’s fire engine cannot enter, especially along the riverbanks or inside ranches.
The truck was provided after the city’s application for the Rural Fire Department Assistance Program (HB 2604) was approved by the agency. The fire department will be able to use the truck after registering it with the city.
