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.

Planning is underway for our part in the next phase of the start up FD in Ayutla, Mexico. Anyone who is interested to participate can contact us through our website or attend a informational meeting at Station 5-1 at 1000 on the 24th of November, 2007 in Gig Harbor, Washington. Either way we are looking at building a team of 10 instructors to provide Ayutla its first fire academy. The trip is scheduled to be in Feb thru early march and more details will be made available to those interested.
This mission is being led by Battalion Chief Paul Wright from Kent, Wa and will be a blast. If interested contact us asap and we can give you the next step info. Hope all are having a good thanksgiving and stay safe.
