Salvation Army providing water for volunteer firefighters

Provided by the Salvation Army of Lubbock

The Salvation Army is also providing 51 regional volunteer fire departments with water for the upcoming summer season. The water will be used to keep firefighters and first responders hydrated when they respond to a fire or disaster. This initiative is extremely important as we are approaching wildfire season in the South Plains. The volunteer fire departments will be picking up water starting today and tomorrow from 8am-4pm. Each fire department is offered 1 pallet of water (1080 bottles) and they are available to be picked up at Essence Bottling Company, 2902 E. Municipal Drive.

Last year, numerous volunteer fire departments used the donated water to help hydrate first responders and volunteers when they responded to local grassfires and wildfires in their area.

For interviews, call Justin (972) 533-0756. Whiteface volunteer fire department will be available for interviews while picking up water, tomorrow May 29, at 11:00am on site at Essence Bottling Company, 2902 E. Municipal Drive.

Monetary donations for victims of disasters can be made:

By mail: P.O. Box 2785 Lubbock, Texas 7408

In person: to 1111 16th Street Lubbock, Texas 79401
