Those are disturbing statistics. I didn’t know they were so high but when considering how many fires there are on any given day the numbers make sense. Too bad there is a need for a fund like this but it sounds like a very worthy cause that I’m sure families of firefighters appreciate.
Firefighters risk their lives everyday, just like police officers. It must be so stressful being married to someone who puts their life on the line every day. Glad to see there is support!
Yes indeed. I think jobs like these should be the highest paying jobs as opposed to corporate CEOs. It’s almost like we have it backwards in how we value life. For people putting their lives on the line for the rest of us everyday, these are the people who are our real heroes.
I agree. There is something wrong when football players get more money then those serving in the armed forces!
Looks like you have found yet another great charity!
