Beeville Fire Department in Need to New Tanker Truck

Posted: Updated:
BEEVILLE (Kiii News) -

The City of Beeville's fire department say they are in dire need of a new tanker truck. They have had their current one for 30 years, and lately, it has been malfunctioning.

The department is hoping to buy a newer truck that can carry about 3,000 gallons of water and is more efficient. The only problem is that it will cost just over $200,000.

Despite the cost, the fire department says it will be worth the money.

The City of Beeville's central fire district and the fire department would all pitch in to help buy the new tanker, along with funds from the City.
