NFFF establishes Yarnell Hill (AZ) Fallen Firefighters Fund

Issue 9 and Volume 166.

The Arizona Line of Duty Death Response Team, a Local Assistance State Team of the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation (NFFF) and part of the Arizona Fire Chiefs Association, has been activated to provide support for the survivors of the 19 Arizona Granite Mountain Hotshot firefighters who lost their lives in the Yarnell Hill wildfire. The NFFF also established the national Yarnell Hill Fallen Firefighters Fund to provide the families, friends, and colleagues of the 19 firefighters who died on June 30 with the immediate help and assistance that the NFFF says they will need for years to come. The NFFF states that 100 percent of the funds collected will be used for this purpose. If you wish to donate to the Fund, send your check to: National Fallen Firefighters Foundation, c/o Yarnell Hill Fallen Firefighters Fund, P.O. Drawer 498, Emmitsburg, MD 21727.
