SHERMAN, Tex. -- The Sherman Fire Department discovered they were one generator short last week. Fire Chief Jeff Jones says sometime in the last few weeks, thieves stole a $700 generator.
Jones says the generator provides back-up power for their communication radios. He says they noticed the generator was missing during routine maintenance.
Jones says now the fire department is taking extra precautions.
"Like a homeowner, we're a victim of theft. It’s unfortunate, but we're taking steps, making sure our doors are locked; our tools and equipment are secured. It’s a very unfortunate event," Jones said.
Sherman Police say this incident is not related to the stolen generator reported last week.
