Hello White Bluff VFD friends and neighbors! Over the last year, I have seen a definite uptick in the number of calls requiring the services of Rescue Boat 131. Being the only emergency response craft stationed on the water, I anticipate that this trend will continue as White Bluff and the areas around Lake Whitney grow. Rescue Boat 131 was donated to White Bluff VFD a few years ago, and the pontoon platform has served our community well in search and rescue operations and in providing emergency first aid when needed. Unfortunately, the boat motor has proven to be somewhat unreliable and underpowered which are not aspects desired in an emergency vehicle. Consequently, we are starting a fundraiser to replace the existing outboard motor with a newer, gently used unit that has a bit more horsepower. We hope you will help us raise $6,900 to upgrade our rescue boat and provide better service to our community.
