MAKING AN IMPACT
Since 2018, we’ve assisted Fire Explorers across California, Alabama, and New York. This year has been our most fulfilling yet, with highlights such as:
- Donating gear that properly fits and is deemed safety compliant and functional! – 102 helmets, 66 boots, 29 pairs of gloves, 11 hoods, 10 goggles, 10 suspenders, 37 turnout jackets, 33 turnout pants; estimating about $135,000 worth of gear!
- Sponsoring 20 young men and women through Fire Explorer Academies! – $3,600 total was invested into furthering educations and opportunities for careers.
- Helping Fire Explorers participate in events and camps where they can gather confidence, team building skills, and network within the fire community! – $2,225 total went towards hosting fundraisers and covering supplies and meal costs for them.
We have done almost a quarter of a million dollars in donations to date since being founded. This includes gear and scholarships. With these donations we have been able to help the following fire departments with all our donations.
