Helping hand: East Delta receives new fire truck

Texas A&M Forest Service Regional Fire Coordinator Nathan Carroll presented East Delta Volunteer Fire Fighter Morgan Baker with a $95,850.90 check for a new small brush truck on Monday afternoon.

The truck is equipped with a remote fire hose that can be controlled from inside the cab, perfect for fighting grass fires with limited volunteers. The department qualified for the grant meeting the 21 or less paid or volunteer member eligibility limit. This gives the department three working trucks.
