The Pedernales Fire Department Auxiliary has launched a fund raising campaign, CATCH and MATCH, to install rainwater catchment systems at each of the three Pedernales Fire Department stations.
Prolonged drought in the region and the September 2011 wildland fire have highlighted the need for additional water resources for fighting fires in Western Travis County. Emergency Services District 8 does not have fire hydrants in most areas and even where they are available, the water pressure is insufficient for fire fighting purposes.
The CATCH AND MATCH campaign was kicked off with a $1,000.00 donation by our neighbors, Willie and Annie Nelson. To date, the campaign has generated $10,525, with six matches and many smaller amounts. The Auxiliary has committed to begin installation at Station 3 on Paleface Ranch Rd. In addition, the Auxiliary has additional funds from previous fund raising events to use for this purpose. However, we are still a long way from our goal of $65,000. Please help us ensure the safety of your neighbors and neighborhood. Make your contribution today.
As always, thank each of you for your support. The Auxiliary couldn’t do what we do without YOU!
