Public Fire Education
Tawakoni South Volunteer Fire Department has ordered a new 2011 International 4400 Tanker-Pumper. The cost is $175,750 for this most advanced top of the line apparatus. We have received a $155,000 grant to help pay most of the cost, but still have to raise a little over $8,000 to cover the remaining balance. We have set up a number of fund raisers to help us make this happen.
We need your help! If you or anyone you know (work, businesses, etc..) can help by donating it is greatly needed. This is a large expence for a volunteer non profit orginazation but with everyones help, we can make it happen! All donations are tax deductable and go 100% towards the tanker fund.
Thank you in advance for helping.
