Thank you notes and banners.
Donations to Wildland Firefighter Foundation.
Join or support your local fire department or emergency organizations- they appreciate your generosity since they are often the first responders.
Create and maintain a defensible space around your home! Give emergency responders and yourself a fighting chance to save your property. For tips, visit the Firewise USA site.
Please Note - Fire camps cannot accept food items due to health and federal contract regulations. Fire crews are fed three meals a day plus snacks.
Donate to local charitable organizations like the Red Cross.
Donate to local food banks, which sometimes get forgotten when fires impact a community.
Contact local emergency management teams to see where shelters are and what the needs include.
