Fix A Firetruck

From the Fire Chief - "We got some bad news Monday. The engine that broke down is really broken. We got it looked at and the conclusion is that the motor has significant damage. However, it can be repaired. We have gotten an estimate of $4000.00 to replace the motor."

This amount is $2200.00 for a used motor, $1300.00 for labor and estimated $500.00 to tow the truck to the shop.

We need this truck, but with ever rising costs the money is simply not in our budget just as a new or used truck is not in our budget either. This truck is vital to our community. The truck is housed at our station 2 which is located in Evening Shade. The town has many small residential structures as well as a convenience store with fuel pumps, and many of the residents are military families. Without this truck response times to the community and surrounding areas will be tripled! Keeping everything else in mind we would really like to beat the winter weather which in itself lends to potential for higher call volumes as people heat there homes and roads are become slick leading to a potential for more motor vehicle accident calls.

Grants have been checked into on several occasions and aside from being time consuming they are extremely competitive. So, in short we are really between a rock and a hard place on this. Whether donations come in or not we will pursue fundraising in this area aggressively and do our best to get this engine up and answering calls.

Your help can make an impact on the communities served by the Roby Fire Department.
