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.
