Bryan city councilmembers during their March 14 meeting unanimously approved spending more money for fire department uniforms.

That caught the attention of councilwoman Marca Ewers-Shurtleff.

She said that more uniforms were ordered because a record number of firefighters have been hired and promoted.

She was also told that more uniforms have arrived following supply chain delays.

Background information given to the council also cited a recent change in uniforms to create “a more professional image”.

The council approved increasing a blanket purchase order of uniforms through the 2026 fiscal year from $99,000 to $175,000 dollars.
