About Jalisco

ATVJalisco 100pixsFirefighters Crossing Borders began assisting firefighters in the State of Jalisco in 2008. Our first mission was a joint effort with TAPFIRE to assist in the creation of a fire department for Ayutla. TAPFIRE, our partner agency, was instrumental in the equipping and training the first-ever fire department of El Grullo in 2006.

In 2012 we took on Puerto Vallarta providing consulting and training opportunities. FFCB assisted in a review and creation of a Master Plan for the City and our regional reprsentative currently heads up the Vallarta Fire EMS Project Team of community organizations working to improve emergency services for the people of PV.

On the 3, 4, and 5th of May 2015, Firefighters Crossing Borders and Puerto Vallarta Protection Civil y Bomberos held a very successful Regional Firefighter Training Symposium in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Ninety five firefighters from Jalisco and Nayarit attended the three training tracks which included High Rise Operations, Pre-Hospital Care and Surf Rescue.Instructors

FFCB instructors from the US, Canada, and Mexico took the lead and worked with Puerto Vallarta instructors on each of the programs. By the third day, the local instructors were playing a major role.

Rotary-making-lunchMarina Puerto Vallarta Rotary Club members prepared lunches for all and Villa Del Palmar, a beach front hotel provided accommodations for the FFCB Instructors.
