Through a Federal re-purposing program, South Sherman Fire & Rescue was able to acquire four M998 Troop carriers from Department of Defense.
With many hours of volunteer work from our members, we were able to transform these trucks from government surplus, to a valuable asset in our fleet. These trucks have proven to be excellent quick attack vehicles off road. With the capability to carry up to 300 gallons of water they are agile and effective in wild-land fire suppression.
When we need to tackle a bush fire, you'll see these vehicles taking on our wild land terrain!
