Mission fire department keeping their equipment clean

Local News

MISSION, Texas — The Mission Fire Department is making sure their equipment is safe to use for emergencies.

Fire officials say they are using sprayers, with a cleaning solution, to keep the equipment clean.

The fire department even goes to other departments on occasion to help them sanitize their equipment.

At the start of each shift, firefighters sanitize their own equipment and vehicles.

“At every one of our fire stations, each one has a setup,” said Robert Alvarez, Assistant Fire Chief “So they’ll do their set up they respond out of. So that is five every day they do automatically.”

Fire officials say they plan to continue to do this as long as it takes to keep personnel safe.
