This will be an exciting year for Round Mountain Volunteer Fire Department and North Blanco County! We begin construction of the the fire station this Spring, which will improve the emergency response system.
The Department has been approached by the Bamberger Foundation with the offer of a matching grant challenge to help with the cost of construction. RMVFD is excited to accept the support of an innovative and dedicated Foundation. Donations we receive by July 31, 2019 will be matched by the Foundation, up to $10,000. We will use these funds to pay for a water well, storage tanks, pumps, and piping at our new fire station. Currently, we do not own a water source nor are there fire hydrants for resupplying water used in firefighting. The estimated cost of this project is $29,500.
The Bamberger Foundation distributes grants to charitable and educational non-profit organizations that encourage and promote land stewardship, conservation, environmental awareness, cultural and historic preservation. Grants are limited by charter to Blanco and adjacent counties, Austin and San Antonio. Their email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
