How To Help

    Please confirm needs by contacting the organization of your choice before taking action. 
  • Help keep firefighters safe by creating defensible space around your home. 

         Creating defensible space around your home is absolutely the BEST thing you can do to help firefighters.  

         Learn how at http://firewise.org.            

  • Post thank you banners / signs in the community and on social media.                                                                        This is a great morale booster for firefighters after a long shift!
  • Write thank you notes to firefighters. Drop them off at the incident command post so they can be posted or shared.
  • Write thank you letters to firefighters families.  Put them in blank, stamped envelopes.  After briefings or after shifts, firefighters can address letters to parents, kids, spouses, etc. 
  • Consider a Donation to Your Local Fire Department
