TEMPLE, Okla._The Temple Volunteer Fire Department is gearing up for its biggest fundraiser of the year.

During the 7th annual barbecue benefit, firefighters will be cooking and carving up 16 briskets. Homemade brisket sandwiches—complete with chips, drinks and dessert— will cost $8 per plate.

You can grab lunch at the fire station Friday from 11:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. or until the food runs out. Temple Fire Chief Chris Medcalf says he and his guys looks forward to interacting with the community they serve each year.

"If they know us on a first name basis, they know that we are going to go give it our 100 percent to save and take care of their property. They really appreciate it and we really appreciate them too," Chief Medcalf said.

With the money they raise, the department plans to pay off the six new tires purchased for the department's tanker trucks, which cost the department nearly $4,000.
