According to Randy Foster of ESD 80, next week an inspection will be performed on a new Tanker 83; the department finally got a check for their services from FEMA for work during Hurricane Harvey; the project was closed out last November. Foster noted the accomplishment of lowered response times this past year.

The department reports lower injuries in 2018. Reports show new gear is becoming available to help firefighters deal more effectively and safely with possible heat prostration.
