2011

Thanks to the Tecolote Auxiliary every firefighter of the La Madera Volunteer Fire Department has a complete set of apparel and gear to help protect them during the fighting of brush and forest fires.

Before the November 5th presentation each firefighter paid out of pocket for this necessary and expensive equipment.  It was purchased one item at a time as the volunteer could afford it. Now all firefighters have a complete set: protective tent, specialized boots, emergency pack, smoke mask, tool and radio carrier, and a helmet with light and neck protector.

Tecolote Auxiliary thanks everyone who supported the Firehouse Festival. The annual Fire House Festival is the auxiliary’s primary fundraiser. Joe Gober, LMVFD chief expressed his gratitude to the auxiliary and invited everyone to attend the Festival in 2012 because there is an endless list of equipment the fire station needs.

Tecolote President, Dick Anderson, believes, “These men and women volunteer to protect us. We can at least provide basic gear to protect them and make their job easier”.
