By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: The Upper Middlesex Volunteer Fire Department in Virginia has donated a 1989 water view Seagrave fire engine to the Belize heroes program, the Southside Sentinel reports.

The Belize Heroes program recycles outdated, but usable equipment to Belize.

The truck title was handed over to Archibald “Mac” McFarlane, founder of Belize Heroes on May 27.

McFarlane noted that Belize has 17 fire stations in the country.

Other neighboring fire departments have reportedly donated used equipment to the program as well.

The department also donated ground ladders, hoses, turnout gear, and mobile radio equipment that Belize is currently utilizing, the report noted.

The Belize Heroes program thanked the Fire department for their valuable donation, “On behalf of the Belize National Fire Service, Belize Heroes wishes to extend a big “THANK YOU” to the members of Lower Middlesex Volunteer Fire Department (LMVFD) for their response to our need for help.”

The Belize Heroes said that they are very appreciative of the generosity and will make good use of this gift (Fire truck).
