Texoma VFD Eager To Get New Fire Truck

The Friburg Volunteer Fire Department held an open house Saturday morning.  They do that every year but this year it was a little different because they had plenty of pictures to showcase.  Later on this summer the VFD will be purchasing a new fire truck that will be a huge asset to the department.

Billy Elmore with the Friburg-Cooper Volunteer Fire Department says they do this to let the community know what's going on with the fire department, "Sometimes a community really doesn't know what all we actually do out here and we try to get information to them,"

They department received a grant from the Texas Forest Service that allowed them to buy the brush truck.
