(E) UK firefighters hold fund raiser for Vukovar fire house

UK Firefighters splash out for Croatian kit 

Apr 30 2003

By Katherine Simmons

FIREFIGHTERS from Lingfield (East Grinstead, UK) swapped their usual hoses for 
buckets and sponges on Saturday.

The crew set up a sud-cessful car wash in the car park of the Star Inn which 
raised towards equipment that will be donated to Vukovar fire station in 

Volunteers at the Lingfield station have been raising cash for the Vukovar 
station since 1991. Two years ago they bought the town a new appliance as the 
vehicles they had been using were 30 years old.

On May 8, new cutting equipment will be delivered to their Croatian colleagues, 
who will then be trained by four Lingfield firefighters.

Sub officer Sean Vatcher said the team had raised 00 since last year to pay 
for the equipment and its transportation. The aim is to donate equipment 
carried as standard by British crews to the Croatian firefighters.

He added: "Raising money for Vukovar has been an ongoing project. In three or 
four years when they have the equipment we carry we will support another fire 

Future events will raise money for hydraulic cutting equipment.
