Friends of the Gunflint Trail Fire Department (GTFD)
This Charity GoFundMe page accepts donations to the Gunflint Trail Fire Department.
The GTFD in northeastern Minnesota is adjacent to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW). The GTFD is essential to the safety of residents and visitors alike.
These firefighters, EMR and EMT personnel go through regular, intensive, professional training. They respond to many different incidents throughout all seasons of the year. They respond to lost and injured hikers, canoeists and boaters in distress, structure fires and wildfires, medical emergencies, and much more.
Friends of the GTFD can help support these men and women with donations.
