Review for Wisconsin Nicaragua Partners of the Americas, Inc., Stevens Point, WI, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have worked with the Firefighter United Program of Wisconsin Nicaragua Partners for 15 years. Over that time we have sent 30 fire trucks and 13 ambulances to Nicaragua. This has very much assisted the emergency services in Nicaragua.

Review for Wisconsin Nicaragua Partners of the Americas, Inc., Stevens Point, WI, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

One of the exciting ongoing programs of the Wisconsin Nicaragua Partners is Firefighters United. Several Nicaraguan firefighters have visited Wisconsin and we would like to start firefighter tours to help Wisconsin firefighters visit Nicaragua. Through this program, since 2000, 24 firetrucks and 12 ambulances have been shipped to Nicaragua. Hundreds of sets of firefighting coats, pants, boots, helmets along with hose, breathing apparatus and other eqipment have been donated by fire departments in Wisconsin. As a volunteer firefighter it is rewarding to see this equipment being used in Nicaragua and to watch as new stations are started across the country.
