Amherst, NY - Used fire equipment from Western New York will get another chance to help save lives in the Dominican Republic.
A group of local volunteer firefighters is donating that equipment as part of their mission work.
"You talk to any fireman, any first responder, and it's the brotherhood. So we decided, well, Brothers Without Borders," says Mike Parker who co-founded the group.
Parker and Brandon Vizzi are the co-founders of Brothers Without Borders. Their group of volunteer firefighters partnered with Score International for mission work in the Dominican Republic.
"The minute that we told them that they were firefighters immediately they were brothers. They were friends. And that was the first time that I really got to see what it meant to be part of the brotherhood," says Jeff Hackett with Score International.
