Salvation Army Recognized for 50 Years of Firefighting in Dallas

their disaster vehicle, furnished by The Salvation Army!
Many years ago, The Salvation Army began furnishing a mobile disaster response vehicle to a group of Dallas firefighting enthusiasts who call themselves the “Box 4 Fire Buffs.”

This group responds to all two alarm or greater fires in the Dallas area with the goal of providing relief to the firefighters who are putting their safety on the line.  The Box 4 team provides water or an electrolyte beverage, snacks, and even meals for long-duration incidents. Box 4 also sets up a rest area with portable chairs and misting fans so the firefighters have an opportunity to cool down.
Recently, Box 4 recognized and thanked The Salvation Army for our 50 years of consecutive service.  That’s half a century!

We continue to provide Box 4 with a customized vehicle that is rarely parked. In fact, even on the night of their 50-year anniversary celebration, they were called to offer relief at a two alarm fire.
We thank our local emergency responders for what they do every day and consider it an honor to help them through our friends at Box 4.
