When you want to help….
In a time of crisis people naturally want to reach out and help. We appreciate those efforts and have developed a list of suggestions.
Most appreciated by firefighters:
· Thank you notes and banners
· Thank you messages posted to https://www.facebook.com/SierraNF/, https://www.facebook.com/CALFIREMMU/, https://www.facebook.com/pg/mariposacountysheriff/
· Donations to Wildland Firefighter Foundation
Although we appreciate your baked goods:
· Due to health and federal contract regulations, we cannot accept any food items.
Note: Local food bank donations tend to decrease when the public chooses to donate their food to fire camp- we feed our assigned fire crews three meals a day including snacks.
The Best Suggestions:
· Mariposa County residents can contact Voluntary Organizations Active in Disasters (VOAD) to confirm their specific needs. (206) 966-5911 or (559) 683-4911
· Monetary donations to your local charity.
· DEFENSIBLE SPACE AROUND YOUR HOME- give emergency responders a safe area to defend your home in.
· Thank you for your cooperation!
