ALERT - Needing Assistance


As most of you know by now, we are working an active wildfire situation in the Harlan/Hazard area. We have deployed a team of 50 firefighters with multiple equipment. I need to compile a team of 50 firefighters that are certified and have had the wildland firefighter awareness class to deploy Monday morning, November 7th, 2016. If you can provide manpower, equipment and apparatus that would be greatly appreciated.

The Governor has signed the declaration and Emergency Management has filed the paperwork with FEMA. As of right now this is a voluntary in state mission, however if funding is received you may be eligible for reimbursement.

The firefighters will need to take personal toiletries, wildland gear, PPE, blowers, rakes and an air pack with a spare bottle. Should you be able to assist with this please let me know as soon as possible.
