Bellevue VFD Receives New Fire Truck

Bellevue Volunteer Fire Department has a new truck.

The VFD received the truck Wednesday afternoon. The new brush truck will help the firefighters battle fires in thick brush.

Both a FEMA grant and the Wichita Area Community Foundation grant made it possible for Bellevue VFD to get the new truck.

Fire Chief Mark Hanson says the truck will come in handy when battling fires. "This is what they call a type 6 engine. This one is four wheel drive. Its smaller. Its designed to get in the brush and go places the other ones cant go. Like if you have dozers putting in the line this kind of truck can follow the dozer."

The Bellevue areas was one of the hardest hit areas this past wildfire season.
