  1. I thought I saw two of Salem trucks at the fire also.

    Why do we not hear about our VOLUNTEER FIREFIGHTERS? They are just as important and do not get paid at all unlike Brenham.

  2. yes thank you very much to the Brenham firefighters for working so hard in this high heat

    1. Yes we are proud of our firefighters. Please support them this weekend at their Fireman’s Fiesta.

  3. This is definitely the time to thank our firefighters! The temperature is 102 and they’re out there in full gear ! Firefighters, thank you for the job you do!
