The Merit Volunteer Fire Department is proud to announce their newest piece of equipment. The department took possession of their brand new Attack 51, built by Municipal Fire Apparatus Specialists.
Merit Attack 51 is a 2019 Ford F550 4X4 with a 400-gallon tank, two workstations, a rear hose reel, and front bumper spray nozzles.
The truck was specked-out by in-depth discussions involving all members of the Merit Fire Department according to Merit Fire Chief Shannon Stevens.
This Attack Truck was made possible by a grant from the Texas A&M Forest Service. Additional assistance was provided by the First National Bank of Celeste.
