Bowie's Fire Department has a new rescue/grass truck.
The truck will allow the department to have two fully equipped trucks available for use. The new truck has a 500 gallon tank, which is nearly twice the size of the old truck, it's replacing.
The truck was funded by a $155,000 Texas Forest Service Grant, with the city funding the remainder $172,222.
The new rescue unit has roll up storage doors on its side with rollout shelving that contains all the rescue equipment. They can be accessed from either side of the truck.
