SANDIA - The ESD #1 Sandia Volunteer Fire Department received five state-of-the-art nozzle heads and 10 pairs of Fire Resistance Boots.

The fire department received the life saving tools through the Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC) Grant in which all of local volunteer fire departments, in Jim Wells County, will receive equipment, computer system and or both over $49,000 worth.

Continuing our commitment to the safety and security of our beloved Fire Departments and the communities in which they gladly put their life on the line for, said County Judge Pete Trevino.
