ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – An Albuquerque fire truck will soon be driving the streets of one Louisiana town.
In August, massive flooding damaged Livingston Parish.
About 75-percent of homes in town were a total loss as were fire stations, and businesses.
Through Albuquerque Firefighter Random Acts, the Albuquerque Fire Department and Bernalillo County Fire Department were able to donate several items including a fire truck and gear to the small department trying to recover.
“You’re looking at a truck of this caliber at a $100,000 so with this donation we can use that $100,000 towards bringing up our fleet or another truck,” Joe Foster, Fire Chief of Livingston Parish Fire Department.
The August flooding in Louisiana was dubbed as the worst natural disaster in the US since Hurricane Sandy in 2012.
