Every donation will go directly to provide paramedic training for Shreveport Firefighters and to provide Police and Fire with Christmas gifts to give to kids in need.
Paramedics are the highest level trained EMS providers and staff the 10 Shreveport Medic Units with Advanced Life Support Transport Capabilities. The 10 units serve the citizens and visitors of Shreveport everyday with over 36,000 calls for EMS service each year. Your donation will assist the department by ensuring a continual process of training firefighters to be paramedics and help continue the highest level of service The Shreveport Fire Department desires to provide.
$6,500 provides paramedic training for one Firefighter. We want to fund 2 paramedics.
Operation Santa Claus and Shop with the Cop are two ways that our local fire and police unions get to encourage and build relationships with families in need during the holidays. We want to provide them with $2,000 to purchase the gifts to share with kids in our area.
Together we can DO GOOD & BE LIGHT in this season! Help us reach our goal of $15,000.
