About Jalisco

ATVJalisco 100pixsFirefighters Crossing Borders began assisting firefighters in the State of Jalisco in 2008. Our first mission was a joint effort with TAPFIRE to assist in the creation of a fire department for Ayutla. TAPFIRE, our partner agency, was instrumental in the equipping and training the first-ever fire department of El Grullo in 2006.

In 2012 we took on Puerto Vallarta providing consulting and training opportunities. FFCB assisted in a review and creation of a Master Plan for the City and our regional reprsentative currently heads up the Vallarta Fire EMS Project Team of community organizations working to improve emergency services for the people of PV.

Rotary International  31028In August 2013, the International Rotary Club in Chapala asked Firefighters Crossing Borders to help them support the firefighters of Chapala. Regional representative Brian Singleton agreed to help them build a community based model where community groups partner with the local government to improve emergency services for their community.

firestationThe President and Fire Chief of Chapala have partnered with the group and FFCB is assisting in a review of the fire departments services and will make recommendations on vehicles, equipment, and training.

We'll also try to identifying strategies for the newly formed "Chapala Fire EMS Project Team" to build community support to raise funds to purchase vehicles and equipment needed to protect the people of Chapala.

FFCB will also invite Chapala firefighters to future Region 2 training events and when possible donated equipment.
