Placitas Volunteer Fire Brigade needs your help
—Sal Gullo, President, Placitas Volunteer Fire Brigade, Inc.
We would like to take this opportunity to make you aware of our upcoming fund drive and to thank you in advance for your support.
In early June, our mailing will come to your Placitas address. We will also post an electronic copy on our Web site, in case you don’t receive a paper copy in the mail. The link will be on the front page at www.placitasfireandrescue.com.
The Placitas Volunteer Fire Brigade, Inc. is the nonprofit entity affiliated with our local fire department in Placitas, New Mexico. We utilize this nonprofit to receive donations and disseminate funds to provide for some of the needed resources for our fire department. We do receive monies from the New Mexico State Fire Funds, but also depend on you, our community, for additional support.
Below is a short list of how your donations have helped us grow and better respond during the past year:
•Approximately 30 members of our community received free training in the lifesaving skill of CPR.
•The purchase and installation of a “Drug Vault” in our primary rescue vehicle secures emergency pharmaceuticals and helps us to comply with current protocols.
•The recent addition of a two car garage to our main station allows us to house two additional and important response vehicles.
•Several department members acquired training at the levels of Emergency Medical Technician Basic as well as First Responder.
•Purchases of specialized equipment such as GPS navigation units improve our response capabilities.
We utilize the donated dollars wisely to provide support to our members as well as to give back to our community.
Please look for the flyer in the mail and donate to help us continue to provide top-notch medical care and response to your fire emergencies. Thank you in advance from all of us here at the Placitas Volunteer Fire Brigade, Inc.
