Canadian fire departments donate decommissioned gear

Needy fire departments in the Dominican Republic will receive the donated turnout gear

CBC News

CHARLOTTETOWN, Canada — The Charlottetown Fire Department has joined forces with organizations throughout the Maritimes to send used fire equipment and gear to an impoverished area in the Dominican Republic.

The plan is to send decommissioned equipment to a small community outside of Santiago, which doesn't have the means to fight fires.

"I guess we take a lot for granted here. There's a lot of departments that aren't as fortunate as we are. It's sort of nice to be able to help out," said Charlottetown Fire Chief Randy MacDonald.
