Waiakea Fire Station to Get Donated 2008 Toyota Truck

I’m sure the county will pass Res.  53-09 on February 18th,  which would allow the Waiakea Fire Station to receive this donation.

The Daniel R. Sayre Memorial Foundation has donated a 2008 Toyota Tacoma Crew Cab,  4 door 4 wheel drive pick-up truck to the Waiakea Fire Station.  The value of the truck was $28,856.02.


The Daniel R. Sayre Memorial Foundation is dedicated to providing essential life-saving equipment and training needed by the Hawaii Fire Department here on the Big Island of Hawaii. We feel that meeting this need is something that all of us, as a community, have an obligation to meet.

The Sayre’s gave a check for $80,206 to Chief Daryl Oliveira in 2006. In 2007 the Sayre’s and the Malkin’s donated a total of $90,000 to the Hawaii Fire Department.

The Foundation was started ten years ago by Dr. Frank Sayre and Laura Mallery-Sayre when the Sayre’s lost their son Danny in a hiking accident and experienced first-hand the heroism and perilous nature of the work that the Hawaii Fire Department experiences on a regular basis.

Unfortunately they did not have rappelling ropes long enough to reach the bottom of the valley.   So Hawaii Fire Department Personnel took their helicopter down into the Polulu Valley at great personal risk.
