The History of Condega Bomberos
The Condega Bomberos Project is dedicated to the people of Condega, Nicaragua. The project was initiated in 2005 when the city of Bend, Oregon signed a sister city agreement with Condega. In 2005 the town had to rely on a city 45 minutes away for fire and emergency response. We established this project to raise funds to purchase equipment as well as an avenue to accept donations of serviceable firefighting equipment. Within two years of being established, their department had a fire truck and all essential firefighting equipment. In 2015 they moved into their modest fire station along the Pan American Highway. They now have a dedicated all volunteer fire department serving their community. Now our mission is to support them through annual visits, training, equipment when requested and needed, as well as some financial support.
