VOLUNTEERIf you live within close proximity, offering volunteer services provides significant support. As flames spread, local fire departments are stretched thin. Assistance programs help with training and providing equipment, and the additional help increases their ability to respond. We understand not everyone has the time or energy to be so hands on, and that’s okay. You can do your part through fundraising in local activities. Be creative and get the whole family involved! Kids can host lemonade stands or you can open a GoFundMe account in response. What matters is the effort and the desire to make a difference.
#ThankYouFirefighters 🔥 While we are on a trajectory to have the most fires we've ever seen, we’re also on track to keep over 90% of fires under 10 acres. That's thanks to the thousands of firefighters working #WaWILDFIRE.
