More good news for the Jackson Heights Volunteer Fire Department. Last Thursday, KLTV aired a story about the department's equipment problems. Since then, several East Texas Fire Departments have offered help.
The Lindale Volunteer Fire Department loaned Jackson Heights a brush truck and gave a $1,200 donation. The Rusk County Fire Association, the Rusk County Emergency Service District #1, and the Carlisle Volunteer Fire Department awarded Jackson Heights a fire engine as well.
The Flint-Gresham Fire Department has also offered the use of an engine and equipment.
