Call To Duty!

ALL ALABAMA FIREFIGHTERS,

We are receiving word that six fire stations have been destroyed on the South Shore of Long Island.  We know of these six and have received little word from Suffolk County or information regarding stations in New Jersey.  Our Brothers and Sisters need us to take action immediately to help them get back into service.  Some of the equipment that came to Alabama in the aftermath of the April 27th Tornados came from the fire stations that now lay in ruins.  Now is our time to step up and lend a helping hand to our Brothers and Sisters that have been there in the past for us.

The Terry Farrell Firefighters Fund is requesting that donations be sent to assist these departments as indicated below.  If you or your department would like to make a donation to the Fund, all of the money will be used to assist the firefighters and their departments.  Contact Spruce McRee, Director of Alabama Chapter Terry Farrell Fund (205-908-3850 – This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) ,Larry Jarvis (205-799-4152 – This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.), or Reid Vaughan (205-499-6905 – This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) if you need assistance with the collection of your donation.  The Alabama Chapter will be collecting donations from Alabama Firefigthers and Fire Departments.  We will forward every penny of that money to the National Chapter to assist the affected departments.  Please see the announcements attached from the Secrets List (www.firefighterclosecalls.com)

Yours in Service,
Spruce McRee, Director
Alabama Chapter
