The Austin Fire Department took delivery of this 1994 Pierce Saber 6 man custom cab truck. The truck has a 1250GPM top mount pump with a 1000 gallon poly tank, 250 HP Diesel Engine with a Allison Automatic Transmission. This truck will replace a 1976 Ford pumper that has served our fire district well. We are exciting about this new addition to our fleet and look forward to putting it in service soon.
The City of Austin was informed by the State of Arkansas Street Aid Committee that our grant application was accepted and approved for $250,000. These funds will be used to repair the roads on Hudson Branch Dr., Crystal Lake Rd., and Waterside Court. We will update the citizens with more information as we receive it. There are currently no time estimates available for engineering and construction phases of the road repair. We have attached our acceptance letter.
