Currently there is one very old fire truck "on its last breath".  The "new" fire truck will replace it and will serve the Placencia peninsula community of 3,500-5,000 people (depending on tourist season).  

 
          
 

The Rotary Club of Edmonton Riverview in Alberta, Canada (https://www.facebook.com/edmontonriverviewrotary/) is donating a Fire Truck to the Placencia volunteer fire department who will be the eventual owner and operator of the fire truck.

The cost to refurbish the fire truck, etc. is ~$15,000. 

The Rotary Club of Placencia (http://placencia-rotary.squarespace.com/) committed $5,000 of the ~$15k estimated cost.  The club will also manage clearing customs in Belize and driving the fire truck to the Placencia volunteer fire department who will be the eventual owner and operator of the fire truck.

Believe in Belize committed to funding $10,000 through its donors.
