The City of Schertz recently launched a new feature on the city’s website that allows the public to contribute donations to specific programs and services. One of the first projects available for donations is the restoration of the 1956 fire truck; this fire truck responded to some memorable fires over it's life and was in service from 1958-1995. After the apparatus was retired it became the official engine to be used in parades.
Between 1995-2017 the iconic fire engine carried City Councilmembers and their families throughout many 4th of July and holiday parades. Unfortunately, due to the age of the truck and the expense associated with repairs and maintenance the fire truck has not participated in any parades the past couple of years. If you would like to see this iconic piece of Schertz history make its way down Main Street yet again, please consider contributing by going online to Schertz.com. The restoration of the this fire truck is anticipated to cost $25,000.00.
Additional programs and services will be accepting online donations in the near future, so stay tuned on Schertz.com to see how you can donate to Library, Parks, or Animal Services programs.
