Associação Obrigado Bombeiros donates much needed firefighting gear

Associação Obrigado Bombeiros at Silves fire stationAssociação Obrigado Bombeiros, now a legal charity, recently visited the Silves and Lagoa fire stations, where donations from the very successful auction held September last year, have been used to fund lifesaving equipment and protective clothing for local firefighters.
The €7,300.00 raised in 2018 by Associação Obrigado Bombeiros, at their auction event at Casa Algarve in Porches, was split equally between Silves and Lagoa Bombeiros.

The donation enabled Silves to buy equipment used to help free road traffic accident victims. In addition, Silves was able to purchase specialist boots and uniforms. Lagoa used its share of the donation to buy 52 pairs of specialist boots for its fire crews. The apparel was urgently needed following the terrible fires last summer in the region.

Some of the purchases were on display when Associação Obrigado Bombeiros visited the fire stations. Committee member, Elaine Evans commented: “We were made to feel very welcome in both stations and given interesting guided tours of the facilities.” she continued: “It was very heartening to see what had been bought with the money we raised and it has encouraged us to set our sights higher this year. In 2019 we aim to raise €12,000.00.”

Associação Obrigado Bombeiros is planning an exciting live music event, scheduled for 18 May 2019 at Carvoeiro Tennis Club. More information on this event will be published shortly.

Associação Obrigado Bombeiros is also continuing to run its popular Wednesday quiz night at The Quinta Bar in Silves. Check the Facebook page for details and updates.
