The ECFA is passing along a request from the Hedgesville Fire Company in West Virginia. They are in need of a brush truck. Their request is below:
We are requesting assistance in locating assistance with our small apparatus. We had three brush truck- old military trucks from the 1970’s. The years have taken their toll and we have patched, welded, and repaired, but we are down to one on its last leg. We have had multiple fund raisers but every time we get ahead something else raises its ugly head and saps it away.
West Virginia’s economy for many years was anchored in the coal industry and year by year it just doesn’t get any better. Therefore if you can get the word out that we are looking for help in our wildland fire efforts we would appreciate it. We have a good slip-in unit, so even a 4wd long bed pickup would help.
Thanks again for your help.
