ESD #4, WPVFD welcome new brush truck

Emergency Services District #4 and the Wills Point Volunteer Fire Department upgraded their ability to battle both grass and brush fires late last week by taking possession of a new brush truck.

Acquisition of the new truck had been a nearly-year long process from ordering the specially-designed vehicle until its arrival at the local fire station Aug. 3.

ESD #4 was established by local voters through an election process in May 2015. The ESD and WPVFD are separate entities from the city of Wills Point, collecting their own taxes and, by law, using those funds only for firefighting purposes.
