    Non Fire departments can certainly contribute to the various relief funds as well. They are listed on the Adopt a Firehouse home page at http://www.adoptafirehouse.com

      Thanks WebTeam!

          As an Officer of the East Hancock Fire Department, Hancock County MS, I'd like to thank every agency and induividual that has stepped up to the palte to help us and our neighbors. I't a great thing y'all are doing, and it's most definately needed as well as appreciated.

          We're still not out of the woods, or for that matter on solid footing. We're working with minimal equipment, manning and seemingly little public interest (Seems like old times...). But we're still on the job and still rolling when needed.

          Every member of our department suffered losses, in most cases not just materially but in family members lives as well. Your support in materiel and moral support keeps us going.

          I'd like to thank MarionMedic for her posts and concern. Although we don't agree on everything, She's got her heart and soul in the right place. Besides, she's lived here and knows how we are. Dedicated people like her have been a godsend to us.

          We'll keep fighting the good fight, and rolling as needed. Keep us in your hearts and prayers.

          Thanks again.

            College Student and Vol. FF

            Good Evening Everyone,
            I'm hoping that someone could guide me in the directrion of providing some aid. I dont have much money (Due to school) or much pull on my dept (Due to rank) but what i do have is a summer off of school. I've been trying to find a dept. or dist. that needs help either rebuilding or even staffing. I've been saving some student loan money to travel to the affected areas, but I do not want to go untill I find a place where I could be used. Dose anyone have some suggestions? Like I said before I can help bulid, clean up, or staff....

            PLEASE E-MAIL ME !!!

                    Surpuss Gear Available

                    Our Department just replaced SCBA, and we have approximatly 12 of our old sets that are fully functional and available. We also have some bunker gear as well.

                    We would like to donate these items to a needy department, and we have heard that there may still be a need in the Katrina hit areas.

                    Please let me know of any department that would be interested. I can be reached at 215-862-4837 (Keith)
