On Sunday, Hagerman fire crews displayed their fire trucks at the city's park for a fundraising effort.
The Hagerman Valley Foundation invited them to set up at the farmer's market. Fire Chief Tim Peterson said the money raised will go toward the department's ongoing projects, one includes possibly purchasing a side-by-side off road vehicle.
"To help with some additional costs that we're not funded for," Peterson said.
Summer is around the corner and Peterson recognizes more people will be passing through the area and the department wants to make sure they have the necessary equipment in case of emergencies.
Several weeks ago, the department needed a vehicle to access smaller roads.
