This is a question we hear a great deal when there is a large natural disasters (large wildfires, earthquakes, hurricanes, etc). While your desire to help is always appreciated, when the disaster hits, fire department administration and resources are spread thin and unless you want to make an automated donation, it is often very difficult to utilize your offer. So, if you're interested in contributing to help your community through your fire department, please consider reaching out before or after a natural disaster when things are a bit slower.
Financial donations and volunteeringare often the best way you can help. While most large cities have full-time paid staffing financed by tax dollars, most small communities are protected by local volunteer fire departments that that rely heavily on state and federal fire agencies if there are major incidents. These volunteer fire departments have tight budgets and typically looking for additional volunteer help.
