We hope that everyone will turn out to support this event. We really need to replace the 25 year-old tow vehicle before it requires any more costly repairs. We cannot get the fire safety trailer out to events without this vehicle. We need to purchase a new(er) vehicle soon to keep the fire safety trailer on the road and continue teaching kids about fire safety and what to do if they wake up to hear their smoke alarm going off. We need the support of everyone, especially firefighters, to support this event.
We have set up a gofundme page to support the vehicle: https://www.gofundme.com/broomefire We would really appreciate any donations, no matter how small.
We need help with the event:
