Marin Country Firefighters are organizing a trip to Honduras to train and provide emergency equipment for multiple fire departments in Honduras. The Firefighters Without Boarders California team is planning to deploy in early April 2019 and will kick-off the week with a series of training courses for the local Honduras firefighters. The courses will focus on basic firefighting and EMS skills, emergency response training, rope rescue techniques and wildland firefighting tactics. Training will be hosted by local Marin County Firefighters who will provide much needed equipment to these under-served departments.
We are asking for your help to raise funds for this trip as there is no current funding allocated by any department. We are a group of local firefighters who want to support and give back to those communities who do not have the same resources and access to training that we do. We're hoping to raise a total of $10,000 to go towards training education, equipment, travel logistics, and housing during our stay. We have personally seen the amazing results produced by previous trips to Guatemala and Peru funded by donations and money from our own pockets. We are hoping to bring and exceed previous program success in Honduras this year.
