BREVARD COUNTY, Fla. — The tiny island town of Bimini, Bahamas — with a population of 1,200 — now has its first ever fire truck thanks to some Brevard firefighters.
During Fall 2017, Hurricane Irma induced a tornado that destroyed homes.
Plus a rash of fires including a big boat fire in June destroyed a boat that delivers mail to the area.
Additionally, a 2013 fire in the police garage torched the town's only pickup truck used to fight fires.
With the backing of the Brevard County Firefighters Benevolent, a fire truck was donated, and now it's all ready and being shipped to the island.
Local departments also donated gear, hoses, and radios.
