General Upkeep Expenses for Firetrucks

$1,370 of $10,000 goal

I have a non profit, based in Colorado, helping fire stations in Cambodia. Two fire trucks are the biggest gifts, one to Sihanoukville (2006) and one to Ban Lung, Ratanakiri Province (2007) as well as over four tons of donated supplies and gear. Please visit my site: www.dougmendel.com for more information, videos and pictures.

The fire truck donated by Red, White and Blue, in Breckenridge, CO in 2005 and shipped over to Cambodia in 2006, is in need of an engine overhaul. I am raising $20,000 for this endeavor. The firetruck has been on 12 calls since April 2006, doing a wonderful job protecting life and property. The most important call was in March 2008 when it responded to a call at a market that housed 160 families' stalls selling everything from food to hardware to crafts. Because the fire was only a minute away from the station, Engine 633 responded very quickly and was able to extinguish the fire with only one stall burning, thus saving 159 families livelihood's from going up in flames.
Thank you,

In 2008, a market that housed over 150 stalls caught on fire in the small town of Prey Nob (Nup). Because the fire station was located 100 yards away, the only fire truck, Engine 633, which was and still is stationed there, from Breckenridge, CO, was able to extinguish the fire and only one stall burned. 159 stalls, representing 159 families's livelihoods, were saved from going up in smoke.

This firetruck needs an engine rebuild. Can you imagine living in a town where the only firetruck might not respond due to a mechanical breakdown ? Please consider donating to help maintain this firetruck and spread this message and link to friends and family to make the engine rebuild a reality. Thank you for your support!
