Did you know that 70% of Texas fire departments rely on volunteers? However, many departments lack the funding needed to acquire life-saving equipment, hindering their ability to respond to emergencies.

At Daniel Stark, we are dedicated to equipping first responders with the necessary tools for community safety. Inspired by Amanda Ruble’s efforts to fundraise for the Leroy Volunteer Fire Department in Axtell, Texas, we strive to support underfunded fire departments across the state.

Our goal is not only to award one of these departments with $5,000, but to spread awareness about this issue and help each department reach their fundraising goals.

When someone is trapped in a vehicle, a well-equipped first responder can be the difference between life and death. Ask yourself, if you were trapped in a burning vehicle, what would you do to ensure that your local fire fighters could get you out in 90 seconds?

Because of Amanda, the town of Axtell, Texas, is safer today. With your help, your home town can be safer too.
