LFD News

Members of the Longview Fire Department have returned safely, after battling a blaze near Bastrop County. Following a request from the state for mutual aid, Longview Fire Department deployed nine firefighters, a standard fire engine, and our new Type III wildland engine specifically designed to assist in fighting wildfires.

This specialty engine was recently acquired through a grant received by the Texas Intrastate Fire Mutual Aid System. Longview Fire is currently 1 of 10 departments in the state to host this particular TIFMAS resource.
