About Sinaloa

OneSinaloaFirefighters Crossing Borders initiated it's relationship with the State of Sinaloa in 2006 with the delivery of a 100 foot ladder truck to Bomberos Culiacan. A second training session brought in firefighters from Mazatlan and other neighboring departments leading to the development of the Sinaloa Fire Training Symposium.

Today 80-100 firefighters and officers from every department in the state come to Culiacan each year to attend this annual 3 day symposium. Topics over the years have included fire officer skills development, engine and truck operations, vehicle, water and rope rescue, and more.

Beyond the annual symposium FFCB regional representatives work closely all year with department heads ushering in equipment and vehicles. In 2013 Bomberos Culiacan developed the first warehouse for equipment coming into Mexico from the US and Canada. Equipment is then distributed to departments in need throughout the State of Sinaloa through the non-profit association Bomberos Amigos.

Three more vehicles for Culiacan - January 2013

Yakima--Rescue760x300Three more good used vehicles made their way to Bomberos Culiacan this month. Two light rescue vehicles and an air fill truck were purchased from Yakima Fire District No. 4 and put into service recently.
The two rescues are being outfitted with auto, rope, and water rescue equipment – to be utilized as the primary response vehicles for the above and more, saving wear and tear on the heavier fire engines.
The air fill truck is awaiting a FFCB representative to arrive and provide training for a small corps of personnel who will ultimately become SCBA (self contained breathing apparatus) technicians for Culiacan and surrounding departments.
Yakima-Surplus-Air-Truck-76In a coordinated effort between personnel from Yakima FD 4 and FFCB regional representative Jordan Pollack, the three vehicles were purchased, filled with essential fire/rescue/medical equipment, and loaded on a shipping company truck at a local apple processing plant, bound for the Mexican border and beyond.
