Build Lockwood Fire a Bunkhouse

Help!  We need a bunkhouse!  Help!  We need a bunkhouse!  Help!  Not just any bunkhouse!  Helll-llp!! 

We are asking for help so we can continue to better help and serve others in our community. 

Lockwood is a small, rural fire department in the Sierra Nevada of northern California.  With a small staff of 7 volunteers, we serve and protect 2500 residents on 22 square miles of winding mountain roads.  We have no sleeper quarters, so our volunteers respond from their homes, even at night.  By putting a bunkroom inside Station 151, we can reduce our response time at night and better serve our low-income, aging community. 

Wtih these funds we will build a sleeping room, finish out the kitchen, and add a shower and laundry room inside the front bay of Station 151 at 23141 Shake Ridge Road.  We basically need everything,  including the kitchen sink!

We would like to start construction as soon as possible before fire season starts this summer because our volunteer firefighters will be the primary labor force for the build-out.

 We receive a small amount of funding each year from a small property assessment and the balance of our operating expenses for medical supplies, vehicles and maintenance, uniforms and protective gear and even water comes from the fundraising efforts of our tireless Auxiliary.  We have been unable to secure any grants for this project and these additional funds would take some the fundraising burden off of our Auxiliary. 

Each significant donor will be recognized on our permanent Hall of Fame as a strong Lockwood Supporter. 

We would love your support to help us volunteers continue to provide top notch support to our community!
