October 9, 2017, a wind driven firestorm enveloped dozens of communities in Sonoma and Napa counties, California. Scores of homes were destroyed, and as of October 10, the fires are still largely uncontained, threatening thousands more. As firefighters risk their lives working to protect civilians, many have learned that their homes were consumed as well.
This fund, managed by Marin Professional Firefighters, IAFF Local 1775 (www.iaff1775.org) is the official fundraising platform to assist firefighters and their families who've lost their homes. Funds raised here will be distributed equally among those in need - currently at least 40 firefighter families affected from IAFF Locals 1401 (Santa Rosa Firefighters), 1775 (Marin Professional Firefighters), 55 (Oakland Firefighters), 798 (San Francisco Firefighters), 1415 (Petaluma Firefighters), and several other smaller agencies and locals.
