Fire equipment in the form of five "heavy-duty trucks equipped with firefighting apparatus" are being donated to Houston in the next two weeks. The metropolis lost "more than 60 fire vehicles" when it was slammed by Hurricane Harvey in 2017, a release states.

The trucks being donated are part of a surplus "no longer needed for primary emergency use," according to the release.
