Washam is appointed as Fire Chief of the 13 member all volunteer “Bucket Brigade.” In 1917 the first major piece of firefighting equipment is authorized for purchase for $300. Purchased is an REO Speedwagon truck with soda and acid tanks, and is Grapevine’s first motorized fire truck. In 1921 the Grapevine Fire Department is chartered with the State of Texas. In 1949 the department becomes a charter member of the Tarrant County Volunteer Fire Fighters Association, enabling neighboring cities to combine resources and to provide a county-wide radio system.
