Wake Village Fire Department receives grant

Posted: Updated:

The Wake Village, Texas fire department now has more than $24,000 dollars worth of life-saving tools at its disposal.

Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation awarded the grant money to purchase equipment for the department.

Wake Village firefighters say their new battery powered vehicle extrication tools will improve the department's rescue capabilities for car accident victims.

The fire department says other local fire departments will train on the equipment.

They purchased the tools in December and firefighters say they've already used them on several emergency calls.
