We have started fundraising for specific larger purchases that will allow us to serve the citizens and tourists visiting the Concan community with better tools that will both empower our team and the leaders in the community.
The Concan Volunteer Fire Department has begun a campaign to increase public awareness about the importance of early defibrillation in the event of sudden cardiac arrest. With your generous donation, Concan VFD can equip businesses in Concan with an AED. Access to an AED can mean the difference between life and death. As a community partner, you can help achieve survival rates here in the Concan Community.
Having a newer brush truck will enable the Concan VFD to handle any wildfire and structure fire situation quickly and effectively. This truck would provide an added layer of protection that is needed given our terrain and climate. It would be crucial for the community’s safety against wildfires and other related situations such as structure fires. By donating for this brush truck, we can ensure that the Concan VFD is well-equipped and prepared for the next emergency. We hope you will consider donating today to help ensure our community is equipped with the necessary tools needed for wildfire prevention.
