Waycross - Ware County Fire and Rescue has some new equipment to help fight the wildfires.
It's an Oshkosh P-15 fire truck, donated to the department from Dobbins Air Force Base through the Georgia Forestry Commission's Rural Fire Defense Screening Program.
The massive truck can drench a fire with 6,000 gallons of water from two separate turrets.
It just arrived last week, but the department says it could be a vital tool in fighting wildfires like the ones that scorched the county. "I wish we could have had it when we had the massive wildfire. There's a couple of areas we could have had a chance of stopping that thing if we had a massive amount of water. This big boy is capable of doing that," says Chief Jimmy Brown.
The truck will primarily be used to fight fires involving hazardous materials, at the airport or railways. But if another wildfire erupts or the current fire flares up, they'll be ready.
