January 13, 2019 Training Session
On Sunday January 13th, the DMR VFD spent the day working on the station and the trucks. The Fire trucks were cleaned and the old gasoline was siphoned out of the pumps and replaced with new fuel. The pumps were operated for a few minutes to insure that they were in good working order. The station’s propane lines were checked for any leaks. The old jeep was stripped of its pump and hose reel in preparation of its sale. The 51 year old jeep has been retired as a piece of firefighting equipment. The Fire trucks were exercised for a few minutes. Fortunately we have had little need to use them. The DMRVFD has received a $20,000.00 grant from the Texas Forest service to purchase fire and rescue equipment for the department. HB-2604 grants are extremely important to small rural departments to supplement our limited funds. We will use our grant to improve our rescue and emergency response capabilities. This grant will allow our department to replace outdated equipment or to purchase equipment that we have been lacking. The grant does not cover PPE. Therefore, we will use our ESD funds to outfit our new personnel for fire school. Fire School is February 21 - 24 in Fort Davis. We hope to have 8 to 10 people in attendance.
We had 3 new firemen join our department in the last two months of 2018. We are always on the look out for new firemen to join our department.
