Texas Department Acquires Brush Truck

BELLEVUE, TX – Using a FEMA grant and donations, the Bellevue (TX) Volunteer Fire Department recently took delivery of a quick-attack brush truck.

Built according to specifications laid out by the company and costing approximately $95,000, the unit is built on a Ford F550 chassis with an extended cab and will carry a three-person crew.

A local company,Steele Fire Apparatus (Haskell, TX) built the truck. According to Bellevue’s chief, Mark Hanson, the company preferred to use Steele Fire apparatus because, as a local company, it understands local firefighting techniques. In fact, the manufacturer’s owner, Bill Steele, is a volunteer firefighter in Haskell.

Steele Fire Apparatus is a family-owned business that employs 10 people and builds 20 to 22 trucks each year.
