Join us on Tuesday, August 8th, from 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM at Fire Station 3, located at 3575 East FM 518, as we celebrate the arrival of our new ambulance with a Push-In Ceremony. 

Push-in ceremonies began in the early 19th century when the first fire engines were put into service. Prior to that, fire departments relied on horse-drawn pumpers when responding to incidents. These carts were pushed by hand back into the station after each call. The push-in ceremony remains a symbol of fire service unity and serves as a way to honor the history found in fire departments across the nation.
