One of our parents is a member of a 16 person team from Portland Fire and Rescue heading to Lima, Peru in March. This team will be training fire fighters in Lima on Urban Search and Rescue. They will be spending three weeks in Peru training them on how to rescue people.
This team is collecting money to help buy rope equipment to leave with the emergency rescue teams in Lima. We will be collecting change to help with this effort through February 29, 2012.
