Windsor Fire Department to Donate Equipment To Honduras
WINDSOR-The Central American Nation of Honduras will soon receive a donation from a local fire department.
The Windsor Fire Department is donating 20 air packs and bottles, 15-20 used fire hoses and two light bars to a fire department in Honduras.
The region in Honduras has a population of more than 100,000 people but only six full-time firefighters. The donation is part of Americans Caring, Teaching and Sharing, also known as ACTS.
Volunteer Dean Siebert of Norwich came to the Windsor firehouse to collect the donation. It will then be transported from Vermont to Pennsylvania. The content will be loaded onto shipping containers to Honduras. Other equipment headed to the Yoro Region includes radio communication equipment, personal protective gear, breathing apparatuses and jaw of life tools.
ACTS Honduras accepts donations in many forms including medical supplies. To find out more visit actshonduras.com.
