A new 2017 Ford F-550 is now housed at the Buckholts Volunteer Fire Department.
The brush truck has a 400-gallon water tank and foam capability, which gives the department greater capacity to protect the farming community.
The dual function apparatus will be used for wildland, structure and car fires and traffic control – which will add value when providing aid on State Highway 36 – the main road through Buckholts.
Funds were raised for the cost share portion by having a “wash pot stew” fundraiser.
