I spoke with Fire Chief Brian the other day. Thanks to recent fundraising efforts (tshirts sales, as well as donations from local businesses) we now have 11 out of 18 vehicles back in service!
We still want those last 7 trucks back on the road for high season next month, so as ever, the fundraising continues!
Brian is also dedicated to raising the funds for new sets of "jaws of life", and tells me that it is imperative that we also aquire thermal imaging cameras for our fire fighters.
I will be down at the ferry dock most days selling shirts and hats so please come on down and load up! They make great souvenirs for the folks back home and they support a great cause...I cant think of many souvenirs that actually save lives!
Remember, you can find a million shirts that say "playa del carmen", but these shirts also say that you care
about playa del carmen!
For those of you that havnt seen it, here again is my video interview with Brian. He gives a brief history of our beloved bomberos, and discusses his future fundraising goals.
