Recent devastating wildland fires have destroyed 3-4 communities in the Santiam Valley, displaced hundreds of people, and blackened miles and miles of forest and more. Our little mountain fire company's vehicles and equipment came through the firestorm largely unscathed, miraculously. But our aging brush patrol is in need of replacement, with a budget dependent 100% on donations , it is time to ask beyond our two communities. Members from both the hot springs and forest cabins communities are displaced, many permanently. As this is the majority of our operating and capital revenue - I ask that you consider a small (or large!) donation to help the cause - thank you.
