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.

Off to Ayutla

After a successful fund raiser and several thousand dollars donated for the Ayutla project, Jose Lopez and several Gig Harbor citizens are driving the 3,000 miles to Ayutla, Mexico to deliver an ambulance, three police vehicles and fire and medical equipment. The Engine that was acquired will be shipped via Rail in November. In Feb 08, Tapfire and Firefighters crossing borders will send instructors to train Ayutla firefighters how to be firefighters.

If you want to help, let us know if your interested in coming down with us for any of our projects, or send donations to the address on the web site.
