About Howard County VFD

In 1909, Big Spring was the first city in the state of Texas to receive a motorized fire truck. That dedication to innovation continues today with the delivery of a Toyne Pumper Tanker/Tender to the Howard County VFD. 

Protecting the 34,000 residents of Big Spring and surrounding communities, the Howard County VFD (HCVFD) comprises 75 members across five stations. HCVFD provides various services including automobile extrication, emergency medical services, hazardous materials response, fire suppression, fire prevention education, rescue, and more.

HCVFD tasked Toyne, Inc., a fire apparatus manufacturer based out of Breda, Iowa, to build a pumper tanker/tender to fit their needs. Mounted on a bolted painted stainless steel body, the new apparatus is powered by a Freightliner 114SD SBA 2-door chassis, a Cummins ISL9 450 horsepower engine, and an Allison 3000 EVS transmission.
