Rural Volunteer Fire Station Rebuild

Campaign Created by: Travis Maddox

The funds from this campaign will be received by Travis Maddox.

Goal: USD $15,000
Raised: USD $ 5,020

The Prepared Homesteaders of the Ozarks has formed a volunteer Emergency Response Team to help our local community by assisting with local medical emergencies, search and rescue, disaster response and educating our neighbors in medical and emergency preparedness. We have been training for the last 6 months and acquiring various certifications in these fields. We have recently teamed up with the local fire department as an auxiliary and they have graciously allowed us to use a fire station that hasn’t been in use for years. This will provide a much higher quality of emergency response in our very rural volunteer area. The old station is in need of lots of repairs and new equipment. There are no public funds to make this happen so our team is paying for this out of our pockets and asking others to help. We need to fix a leaky roof, repair the plumbing, rebuild some interior walls and replace the over head garage doors to name a few things. If you can help in any way you would be helping a small rural community increase their emergency response to those in need. Thank you for your consideration.

Finished up the demolition of the old structure and started the layout of the new walls. Have a volunteer crew coming in tomorrow to finish up the rough in on the plumbing and start the framing. We have come a long way but still have a lot more to do! Even though it’s a mess we have already started responding to calls out of this station. We were going to wait until it was closer to being finished but the need it too great so we work around the mess to go on 911 calls.

We were able to get the furnace running without any expense! Turned out to be a loose wire. Praise the Father!
