Arbala Volunteer Fire Department Receives Grant for New Scott Air-Pax

Arbala Volunteer Fire Department received a grant from the Texas Forest Service for eight Scott Air-Pax with facemask. AVFD now has in date air packs and cylinders for each fire apparatus.

Each fire fighter must have a full set of in date personal protective equipment to perform a safe and effective job. Outfitting a fire fighter with new PPE would cost close to $10k.
AVFD said in a post, “Arbala Volunteer Fire Department strives to provide the best service we can for the citizens. We could not make it without these grants on limited county funding.”
