Update from West TX. All of their equipment needs are being taken care of, according to the regional fire coordinator. It appears a major radio manufacturer will be providing them with new radios, and they are working on an engine.
West EMS, another volunteer organization there lost 2 ambulances, and 2 /3ds of their staff. They are in desperate need of an ambulance to replace one of these. They have the use of a 1999 model, but need another reliable rig.
They could also use stair chairs, and stretchers.
PLEASE, lets work through the regional coordinator. These are specific needs - your 1958 discomboobulater is NOT needed. They do not need to be inundated with stuff they do not need... Their words.
So can anyone help? Transportation can be taken care of... firstname.lastname@example.org

Believe an Engine from my County is headed their way; one of our local Chiefs has been coordinating with someone down there to get what they need. We had a list of their needs, and I know I've been looking for some items we can send down with it.

let us know when they should arrive. I hope to announce tomorrow a corporate donation of some vital equipment they need, just waiting for all the levels of approval.

I fully agree Warren. Great to be apart of this awesome brotherhood. We received a lot of help a couple years ago when we got racked by 2 Tornadoes. Guys if there is anything else that can be sent to West Texas let us know, we would be willing to contribute.

The biggest need is an ambulance, but thanks everyone. A major radio manufacturer will be announcing soon some radio equipment going there....
