(June 1, 2021) “This is so awesome!! Thank you, thank you,” said Chief Carol Fall. “We responded to an escaped burn pile that threatened to move into the forest a few weeks ago and one of our new recruits was wearing hiking boots. He got toasty toes as we were mopping up, so firefighting boots will be so much safer. This is wonderful news just in time for a worrisome fire season.” Her department will be receiving $1,000 for three pairs of wildland boots for three new recruits. I’m happy to help the new recruits who made the choice, and sacrifice, to serve their fellow citizens.
