First meeting of the BBVVFD or Big Bend Valley Volunteer Fire Department. This all went well until one of the potential members decided he wanted to run the show after a unanimous vote for the Fire Chief. That member and his wife chose to leave after he didn't get his way.
Second picture shows our fire station. Actually we only get half of it as it will also be used by the building owner to store construction equipment at times. The Fire Chief from the Study Butte/Terlingua fire department was supposed to show up to add input, but he didn't make it. The meeting was a success without him and despite the other two people leaving.
The manager of the Cowboy Mine has said she will make sure any tanks we get will be filled with water. Lee's pickup with a 400 gallon tank, pump and commercial grade fire extinguisher is our first fire truck and more equipment is expected to be donated by other fire departments. Including fire suits and accessories.
Lee was voted Fire Chief, I was appointed fire Captain and Dave was appointed Secretary. It also falls on me to be the communications officer since I pretty well have line of sight to most of this area. I'll be adding a CB tower for communication with members who have CBs. Other members were appointed other positions and I'm sure others will be appointed for other positions later.
If any of you moving down here full time want to join let me know and I'll pass it on. There will probably be a monthly meeting.
