TMW&F, being a motorcycle club and a 501C3, is always on the lookout for opportunities to help less fortunate fire service organizations. After 17 straight years of enjoying the Sturgis, SD motorcycle rally: TMW&F Directors reached out to the Brownsville, SD VFD to see if they had adequate vehicle extrication equipment. They did not. TMW&F had a Holmotro set donated for their Mexico work, but the opportunity to help this US department seemed a priority.
In August, 2019, the director and vice-director of TMWF met with the Brownsville, SD VFD. They presented them with 108 sets of turnouts, and the full Holmotro hydraulic rescue tool set.
The next day was spent conducting a full extrication course, including ICS, engine company operations, Extrication tool class and practical, ending with practice evolutions on two acquired vehicles for training.
