Wichita Falls Fire Department Gets New Water Rescue Boats

The Wichita Falls Fire Department purchased new water rescue boats.

“Mainly when we responded down to Houston during the hurricane the boats that we had they worked well down there for what we were doing, but here at home for rescue situations we just felt like we needed to upgrade for better equipment,” said WFFD Interim Chief Donald Hughes.

The new watercraft will replace their 1990 models.
