Several Central Texas Volunteer Fire Departments were awarded more than $6 million in grants.
On Aug. 9 the Texas A&M Forest Service Rural Volunteer Fire Department Assistance Program awarded the grants.
Gatesville, Lake Limestone, Holland, and Moffat Volunteer Fire departments were among the awarded.
“Volunteer fire departments make a tremendous difference all across this great state in our shared mission to protect life and property,” said Texas A&M Forest Service Capacity Building Department Head Jason Keiningham. “We must do whatever it takes to help them succeed.”
“We are extremely excited, to receive a grant for a tender,” said Gatesville Volunteer Fire Department Chief Billy Vaden. “We will be better prepared to fight fires with this tender.”
