After waiting several days for orders, North Montgomery County Fire Department and Porter Fire Department were given deployment orders to the California Wildfires. The trucks that are being sent are trucks obtained on a grant with the agreement that they would be manned and deployed as needed wherever needed. Over the years that has mostly been Texas. This is the first deployment outside Texas for the departments. Saturday afternoon they delivered the trucks to Webster where they are being loaded on 18-wheelers for the 2500 mile trip. Along with their trucks are Galveston, Webster and Baytown. Baytown just picked their new truck up 3-days ago and will be its first mission. The crews for the trucks are being flown to Sacramento, California where their trucks will meet them. The current plan is 18-day rotations on the crews. The equipment will remain but a fresh crew will be flown out. Currently, thousands of acres are on fire in the Western United States with no end in sight.
