Cason VFD upgrades firefighting capabilities

Cason Volunteer Fire Department recently received aid from two assistance programs administered by Texas A&M Forest Service.

The department received an excess military vehicle, a Bowen-McLaughlin-York five-ton transport truck, from the Department of Defense Firefighter Property Program.

A requirement of the program is that the department turn the military vehicle into a fire-fighting apparatus within 180 days of acquisition.

“We painted the truck and did some other repairs like moving the red line reel down behind the cab so a fire-fighter doesn’t have to be on top of the truck to reach the line,” said Jerry Ragsdell, Cason VFD Chief. “Being able to reach the line from the ground is a safety issue and safety is a priority with our department.”

In addition to the military truck, the department also received a grant through the Rural Volunteer Fire Department Assistance Program. The grant was used to fund a slip-on unit for the back of the truck.

Banquet honors distinguished alums

Once a year, the Daingerfield Alumni Association gathers to honor graduates of Daingerfield High School who have moved on from their time in the hallowed halls of Daingerfield to make extraordinary contributions to their communities. On Sept. 24, the group met once again, honoring four graduates from various years. The evening began with alumni and their families perusing the silent auction, making bids on everything from collector’s coins to signed Daingerfield Tiger footballs. After Mike Gilmore, who was in charge of mood music and the sound system introduced the Mistress of Ceremonies, Pamela Lee, an invocation was offered up by Donald Roy Vaughn, DHS class of 1962. Those present then partook in a steak dinner that included steak, baked potato, salad, and peach cobbler, prepared and served by the Daingerfield Fire Department and the Daingerfield High School cafeteria staff.
