Here to Serve.

An Edinburg apartment caught on fire and our Fire Department was there promptly to help fight it. After tragedies like this one, many families don’t have a place to stay but that's not what happens in Edinburg. Our Fire Department has teamed up with the owners of Best Western hotels. For 20 years, Best Western has been there to give displaced families a safe place to stay, at no cost, until they find a new place to call home. #EdinburgFireDept. #EdinburgProud
