A month ago, the Friends of the Šćedro island association called for help in raising money for a fire truck. A fire truck, that would be permanently located on the island and thus ready to fight a fire or help in any other way needed.
In a month, the association managed to collect 6.690 kn. The rest of the money was provided by the association and the local authorities (Opcina Jelsa) and so, the truck was successfully delivered to the island today.
According to the FB page of the association, the truck will be used in many different ways. Apart from fire-fighting, it can and will be used to water olive trees, to unload materials from boats, to transport goods and materials as needed. The truck can even be used to lift a ship.
A lot is going on at Šćedro these days as heavy machinery left the island 4 days ago after helping to widen forest paths and made new fire ways. Main points on the island are now connected and accessible.
