Dolese Brothers Company Donates Truck to Kildare Fire Department to Help Combat Wildfires

Tue, 24 Apr 2018 15:06:13 CDT

Dolese Brothers Company Donates Truck to Kildare Fire Department to Help Combat Wildfires Oklahoma City-based Dolese Bros. Co. donated a truck to the Kildare Fire Department on Friday, April 20, 2018. The truck will aid in the fight against the wildfires in north and western parts of Oklahoma, as well as general fire response and intervention efforts in the rural community.

In the middle of fires in Kildare Fire Department’s district last week, the driveline snapped of the department’s only tanker, which has served the Kildare community since 1986, cracking the transmission casing and breaking the power time-out shaft going to the pump.

“Dolese is proud to deliver to the community of Kildare during their fight against the wildfires in rural Oklahoma,” Dolese Community Relations Director Kermit Frank said. “If we have a truck available when one is requested, we do our best to deliver.”

Dolese presented the keys to the 2006 Sterling truck chassis to Kildare Fire Department Chief Travis Harris. The department will fit the truck with a 2,500-gallon tank and put it to use immediately to help end the wildfires.

“The Kildare Fire Department is grateful for Dolese’s donation of a 2006 Sterling truck chassis to replace the department’s 40-year-old tanker truck,” Harris said. “Dolese has given my department peace of mind about our ability to effectively keep our community safe from the current wildfire and future fires. This truck will be a great asset to the fire department and community of Kildare.”

Rural fire departments have limited budgets for firefighting equipment and vehicles. Access to adequate fire equipment is critical for successful outcomes in emergency response. Dolese has historically donated used trucks to fire departments in need across the state.

Dolese Headquarters is in Oklahoma City with numerous locations around the state. The closest plant to Kildare is 7 Mile Mine located in Ponca City at 6480 N. Enterprise Rd.
