BLVFD’s new grass truck sees first action
Reagan County’s new grass truck hit the fire line Friday for the first time fighting a grass fire 10 miles south of Big Lake off State Highway 137.
The new truck arrived in town last Monday with the promise of helping a fire department that finds itself short of volunteers to fight fires during the work week.
“We designed this truck to fit our needs as a department,” Fire Chief Alan Garner said. “We have one system in particular, the remote deck gun, that practically gives us another fire fighter.”
