SISTERS, OR -- The Sisters-Camp Sherman Fire District has a new firetruck in service in Camp Sherman. The water tender is a 2005 model previously used at the Kandahar Air Base in Afghanistan. It replaces a 1968 truck that had reached the end of its service life. 

 

The new unit was purchased through a program designed to re-purpose government-owned assets at the local level. Sisters Fire paid just over three-thousand dollars for the truck, and the Chief expects to invest another 20-thousand in upgrades. He says a new water tender can cost over $200,000.

Most organizations are asking for cash, rather than supplies, so they can route help to where it’s needed most more quickly. Here are some of the largest groups with campaigns underway:
