During his annual southward migration, Steve Holder encountered a line of engines and ambulances at the US/Mexico border:
On the drive into Mexico today we stopped for our visitor visa and saw this long line of engines and ambulances. The Rotary Club from Grand Prairie, Alberta is taking them to Mazatlan where they will be distributed to areas of greatest need. These rigs are packed with lots of fire gear. Bunch of great Canadians doing good things- they seemed to be having fun!
Thank you Steve!

I love people making their way across borders of geography, resources, and politics to help out the other dedicated people working with the same goals!
Our good Canadian neighbours bringing very useful equpiment for our community in Mexico. Muchas gracias amigos Canadienses 🙂
This is a great work! Thanks Bill Gabbert and Steve Holder for putting this up. Very much appreciation to Bill for his coverage of other critical issues that im sure he doesnt get many thanks for – a sincere thanks to you Bill. Without this site we (forestry techs and others not far off) would be in the weeds without a clue.
For those not in the know it’s been a multi-year program through the rotary clubs in Canada and Mexico where they try to purchase the older engines/ambulances/bunker gear from fire departments when new gear arrives. It’s then sent down by volunteer drivers and different communities tend to be involved each year. But been hearing of this for at least a decade just done low key.
