2/15/02 Chief Rivera called today and reported that Franconia
Volunteer Fire Department Located
in Fairfax,VA is donating a 1988 E-ONE. "We will be
back in service soon, I can't believed how the brothers
came through for us" Chief Rivera said. We have the
hose we need now, the one thing we need is to replaced a
few more 4.5 Scott bottles and we need a rabbit tool.
Willliam Rivera, chief of the company said, "We took a big hit on 9-11. Our fire engine, a 1980 American LaFrance FDNY rig (former Engine 63) was damaged but not destroyed. We are trying to get the engine repaired. It would be great if we could get a late model engine donated to the department. We really appreciate that Withthecommand.com is assisting us on this effort."
We have targeted PG County, Maryland, as the kick off location to start the Withthecommand.com boot drive.
In the next 3 weeks we will be visiting every fire company in Prince George's County, Maryland on boot drive for the brothers. Please reach out and do the same. Just send in the donation to the above address. When you send in your checks drop us and email we will post your donation on-line as a thank you!
