Valera VFD Receives New Brush Truck

Firefighters in Valera will now be better equipped to fight fires.

VALERA, TX - Firefighters in Valera will now be better equipped to fight fires.

The Valera Volunteer Fire Department received a new truck with the assistance of a grant from the Texas A&M Forest Service.

The truck can carry 1,500 gallons of water and has a built-in foam system, which makes the water go further and will smother the flames while coating the fuel.

This coating will prevent the area from re-igniting.
