On July 20th, Lt. Brent Fulmek and Senior Firefighter Phillip Tufford visited our club to present on their Grande Prairie Firefighters Roatan Group project.
The group was established in 2010 and the first trip was in 2012. Their main focus is to provide training to the Roatan Bomberos in a variety of different skill sets such as:
  • vehicle extrication
  • firefighter survival/rescue
  • technical rope rescue
  • hazardous materials
  • and more
The group raises money and collects donations to send firefighters to the island, who volunteer their time, take their own vacation off work and provide their own meals and spending money. The funds raised go towards flights, transportation, and accommodations.
