Local fire department buys life-saving tools

BLOSSOM, Texas (KXII) -- The Blossom Volunteer Fire department has some new tools that could help save your life if you're ever trapped following a car accident.

Chief Jeff Stover says the department purchased cutters along with a spreader and ram.

They also bought a two-stage pump that will allow fireman to operate both tools at the same time.

Stover says with the new tools they can now immediately start to work on a car instead of having to wait on Paris Fire to arrive.

Cars were donated earlier this week for the firefighters to practice with their new tools.
