Commissioner Rosaura "Wawi" Tijerina stated, "Even though it is very remote, very far from Laredo we still have the same services here." The fire station was long awaited by residents who previously relied on volunteer Firefighters. From fires to medical emergencies the new station in Bruni will also serve the residents of Mirando City, Oilton, and Aguilares. Fire Chief Ricardo Rangel attended the ribbon cutting ceremony and said, "And we'll be responding from this local area to the citizens of Quad City areas and hopefully to improve response time that we've never had before in this general area for emergencies." The easy access to the new three hundred thousand dollar station is changing the way things worked before when residents tried contacting Firefighters. "They would call anybody at their house to see if they were available to respond. Not anymore!" The new fire station is said to open 24/7 staffed and ready to help residents with any emergencies, even if it means flying them out to another city. The ability transport patients to hospitals in other cities via helicopter allows Bruni crews to come one step closer in saving lives. The fire station is only the first of many more resources yet to come to the area. "Very soon we're working on remodeling the Judge's office, opening a substation for the Sheriff's office and a substation for the Constable." Carolina Garcia Pro8news.
