In a time of crisis people naturally want to reach out and help. We appreciate those efforts and have developed a list of suggestions.
Most appreciated by firefighters:
√ Thank you notes and banners
√ Donations to Wildland Firefighter Foundation
What we cannot accept:
√ Food items- due to health and federal contract regulations
Note: Local food bank donations tend to decrease when the public chooses to donate their food to fire camp- we feed our assigned fire crews three meals a day including snacks.
The Best Suggestions:
√ Join or support your local volunteer fire department or emergency organizations- they need your generosity since they are the first responders in many cases.
√ Donate to local charitable organizations like the Red Cross.
√ DEFENSIBLE SPACE AROUND YOUR HOME- give emergency responders and yourself a safe area to retreat to or to defend your home in.
