    Default Greeting from LaPax and assistance please

    Hi,
    This is my first post and I would like to say Hola to all my fellow firefighter. I am a volunteer with the La Paz BCS,MX Fire Department. I have been a volunteer for 4 years, during that time I have recieved my Basic EMT certificate from the Mex Red Cross. I have recieved various other training from the department. I function as the only bi-lingual member of their staff, assisting in explaining equipment operation to my fellow firefighters, when items are deliverd by non-Spanish speaking donators.

    Now on to my problem; I loaned my 'comabat-fire' clothes for them to be used in a local childrens parade. Unfortunately, my helmet was not returned to the station with the other equipment. Our department operates on a very small budget and I am having a problem getting the 'powers at be' to issue me another helmet.
    I would like to solicit your assistance in getting a used helmet for my personal use. New helmets here may run over 2,000 pesos. My income is limited and would like to acquire a used one in good / safe condition .
    Thanks, My resonse time to any correspondence will be slow as I do not own a computer.

    (I'm Mike and I prepared the English version, Dianna translated to Spanish. It was my wife who borrowed the equipment and it all went on the truck headed back to station...stranger things have happened...)

    We received a grant to replace our turnout and now have a couple decent (used) helments I could get rid of. Give me an address to send it to and a color preference (Yellow, Red) and I can probably take care of your helmet needs.

    Alegre a acorro
