    Sep. 24, 2012: Star-Telegram article

    Nelson Cruz's hometown of San Francisco de Macoris in the Dominican Republic. The city of more than 245,000 residents is a provincial capital, but firefighters lack a rugged pumper truck, and ambulances are few and far between.

    Now the Rangers slugger, with help from the Arlington Fire Department, American Medical Response and others, is doing his part to change that.

    The right fielder with the cannon arm has purchased an all-terrain apparatus that he will donate to the fire service. Before Wednesday's game against the Oakland A's, Arlington Fire Chief Don Crowson will present the keys to his Dominican Republic counterpart, Chief Luis Esmurdoc.

    That's not all. After hearing about Cruz's initiative, American Medical Response, which provides ambulance service in Arlington, is donating two ambulances. The Fire Department, which found a suitable truck in Minnesota, and the dealer that sold it are chipping in hand tools, hoses and nozzles.

    Next month, the Fire Department plans to donate a retired fire engine to the Arlington school district for the High School Fire Academy. Students in the academy studying to become firefighters and emergency medical technicians will use the engine for training, Carroll said.
