The SW Florida Heroes Foundation, Inc. presented the Alva Volunteer Fire Dept. with a donation of $3,500.00 which allowed them to purchase a Vehicle Stabilization Kit. This apparatus is highly needed for the protection of the heroes who show up on scene of a rollover vehicle accident and this stabilization kit allows the heroes to hold up the vehicle from rolling on top of them while they are trying to rescue the occupants of the vehicle.
Alva, FL. is a rural community in eastern Lee County and the resources for their district are the lowest in Lee County for a Fire and Rescue District due to more properties in Alva being zoned Agricultural. With the help and support from the Alva community & local business community such as the Fort Myers Memorial Gardens, Nature's Blueprint and others, the Alva Volunteer Fire Dept. was humble to receive the donation.
