WHY ARE WE RUNNING THIS CAMPAIGN
We currently have two support vehicles now with one being a newer vehicle and the other one being on its last leg. We are looking to replace the older rehab truck to match our new one so we can continue to support our first responders to our fullest potential. 100% of the money raised will go into the purchase and outfitting of the new rehab vehicle and any money over the goal amount will go towards the continued support of our first responders. (Pictured at the top of the campaign is our newer truck and we would be buying and outfitting an identical one)

COST BREAKDOWN:
New Vehicle: $50,000
Outfitting: $25,000
Fees/Taxes/Misc: $10,000

WHAT IS OUR MISSION Dehydration and Exhaustion of our Emergency First Responders can be life threatening. The stress of Fire, Rescue, Hazardous Materials, SWAT and other emergency operations can create great stress on the body and Heart of these workers. Rehabilitation of First Responders is defined by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) as, “An intervention designed to mitigate against the physical, physiological, and emotional stress of fire fighting, rescue and other high stress public service duties, in order to sustain a member’s energy, improve performance and decrease the likelihood of on scene injury or death.”
