Your Generous Gift will Support:
Some of the most immediate funding needs of the department are a few replacement engines for apparatus (Fire Vehicles) that are beyond their service years for safety, compliance and maintenance capabilities. Additionally, Northshore needs PPE Extractors (heavy duty specialized decontaminators) used to clean firefighter personal protective clothing.
FIREFIGHTER SAFETY & TRAINING
Our firefighters need additional PPE clothing for structure fires and new generation Fire Shelters for Wildland life safety. Decontamination from firefighting and EMS situations is even more important today than ever. Our firefighters need the protective gear that will keep them safe to continue to provide us the services they do and to be ready to handle whatever comes at them. Additionally, our firefighters are often coming from outside of our district, whether they are career staff or interns and our Stations and crew quarters need to be facilities they can live in while on-duty. Training is also a need we have for our firefighters in the Northshore. They get a great deal of it on-the-job as we are an all-risk agency; however, there is often the need for bringing in instructors or setting up incentives to keep our team up-skilled on the technology and changes in the EMS/Firefighting profession.
COMMUNITY PREVENTION & AWARENESS
Being able to train new personnel and retain firefighters by providing them the equipment and skills to do their job, will mean that we have an even more committed Fire Department, who will continue to engage with our communities in preventative training and awareness. The hope would be to have key events and regular community activities surrounding CPR, Fire Prevention, Public Safety, Involvement with our children in the schools (Stop, Drop, & Roll), and awareness on a variety of other important topics to our lives and communities.
