When You want to help firefighters

Posted: Tuesday, Jun 25th, 2013

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.

√ For other ways to volunteer or make donations dial 2-1-1 or visit http://helpcoloradonow.com/
