Media Advisory: Quezada, McKee, Polisena to join event highlighting donation of Johnston fire trucks to Dominican Republic
STATE HOUSE – Sen. Ana B. Quezada (D-Dist. 2, Providence), Lt. Gov. Daniel McKee, Johnston Mayor Joseph M. Polisena and Johnston Fire Chief Peter J. Lamb will be on hand tomorrow as the Johnston Fire Department gives the keys to two decommissioned fire trucks to an organization that will deliver them to communities in the Dominican Republic.
The Town of Johnston is donating the two trucks to la Fundación Abundancia de Agua, a Rhode Island-based Dominican relief agency. Julio Ortiz, who is organizing the effort through the foundation, will also repair the decommissioned trucks at his Providence auto shop before shipping them to two communities in the Dominican Republic, Bani and Hato Major.
The media is invited to attend.
