Tulum fire department receives second equipment donation from Canada

Tulum, Q.R. — A Canadian fire hall has been thanked for their recent donation to the fire station in Tulum that their director says, will allow the firemen to better perform their duties.

The Orford-Highgate Fire Hall in Ontario has provided a load of much needed fire equipment including pants, jackets, gloves, coveralls, safety glasses, harnesses and masks as well as basic medical equipment. This is their second donation.

With the new equipment, the training of the firefighters will not stop, said the director of Bomberos Tulum James Bracamontes Ramírez, adding that “This training is basically the daily routine that every fireman must carry out to ensure they are able to do the work as the circumstances demand.”

The donation from the group of volunteers from Canada was received by the secretary of the city council, Enrique Rodríguez Luna. The donation was made possible by Tom and Calhy Jones, Dave and Marcia Parry who visited Tulum to make the second donation.

With this, the fire department now has enough material to equip its men with the necessary tools to carry out their work efficiently and to carry out the tasks that emergency moments demand.
