Velma Fire Department approved to lease two trucks

Posted: Updated:

VELMA, Okla._The Velma Volunteer Fire Department will be adding to their fleet thanks to an approval by Stephens County commissioners.

The department will lease two brush trucks for the next five years from Midwest Fire to the tune of $213,000. The money for the lease is coming from the Stephens County emergency services sales tax. The fire department says the trucks will mark the first upgrade to the department since 2006.

The final contract is set to be approved by next week. After that, officials hope to have the trucks in by October.
