Benton Count Fire District 2 Association in conjunction with Benton Co Fire Protection District #2
are raising funds to purchase a Wooldridge XP or similar rescue recovery boat. The Yakima River runs through
our entire district. Currently there is no rescue boat to respond to water emergencies and no surface rescue system
in the Fire District.  Our response area annually has thousands of raft floaters, bass fisherman, and people in canoes on the local river. 

Goal is to raise $55,000-$60,000 to purchase a River Boat and related equipment.

You can get more information or help support this effort by clicking the GoFundMe logo.

You may also chose to donate using out Brick Fundraiser.
