The newest addition to the Brenham Fire Department’s fleet has arrived at the Brenham Fire Station.

Members of the Brenham Fire Department,
Brenham City Council and other city officials stand
next to the department's new fire engine on Friday.

Brenham City Councilmembers and other city officials gathered at the station this (Friday) morning to check out the new fire engine, which was delivered to Texas from Wisconsin. 

Brenham Fire Chief Mark Donovan says the engine will greatly benefit the fire department as it continues to grow.

The engine comes with a 1,000-gallon water tank and is equipped for a five-man cab, with firefighting and rescue capabilities. 

Stephen Draehn, City of Brenham Facility and Fleet Supervisor and Assistant Fire Chief for the volunteer end of the fire department, says the truck will be the department’s second main engine and should go into service within the next month or so, once it is fully outfitted.  He says the truck will include hoses and other equipment purchased by the department’s volunteers through the support of the community.

The city first approved the purchase of the truck in early 2022 to replace an older engine that will go into reserve status for now. 

The truck will operate out of the department’s second fire station once it is complete.
