Fedor Volunteer Fire Department Gets a New Fire Truck

The Fedor Volunteer Fire Department has taken delivery of a new fire truck. The new truck, classified as a Large Brush Truck by the Texas Forest Service, was bought with grant monies provided by the Texas Forest Service and by proceeds from the the annual Fedor VFD Fish Fry.

The brush truck was designed by the Fedor Fire Department and built by Ag-Meier Fire Equipment in Belton, Texas.

The Freightliner chassis is equipped with a 1500 gallon water tank and a 20 gallon foam tank.

A 350 gallons per minute Hale pump supplies the various hand lines and remote operating front bumper nozzle.

The new truck will be used as the primary attack truck on structural fires and large brush fires, as well as supplying the smaller brush trucks with water.

The volunteers continue to train on the new truck, and after Texas Forest Service inspects the new truck, it will be put in service.

Pictured below are members of the Fedor VFD standing in front of the new vehicle.

There is another picture of the truck in action seen on page A2 of today’s paper.
