On November 19, 2015, the Harris County ESD No. 16 Commissioners voted unanimously to approve the purchase of two (2) new Pierce Velocity Engines for Klein Volunteer Fire Department which will enable firefighters to better serve the community. The engines will be purchased from Siddons Martin Apparatus utilizing the HGAC contract. The first engine should arrive in the summer of 2016. It will replace an existing engine which will move to the reserve fleet. The second engine is scheduled to arrive in December 2016 and will go into service at the new Klein VFD Station No. 8 located in the Gleannloch Farms area once that station comes online early in 2017.
