Great Job CPFR!

On Thursday, May 20th from 2pm to 6pm members of Crown Point Fire Rescue held an Annual Boot Drive for the Hoosier Burn Camp. We would just like to say thank you to all the people that drove through Crown Point and donated. All of the proceeds will be given to the Hoosier Burn Camp which this year's total was $8,641.10.

The boot drive for the Hoosier Burn Camp is a combined effort from NWI Fire Departments and 1-800-Boardup. Other area fire departments will be having similar boot drive fundraisers for the Hoosier Burn Camp this summer until August 28th. The goal is to make another large, combined donation to the Hoosier Burn Camp on the late Jack Eskridge's birthday who started this annual boot drive fundraiser many years ago.

Hoosier Burn Camp is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization committed to providing life-changing experiences for young people who have suffered the physical and emotional trauma associated with a severe burn injury.

The annual summer camp and monthly events create experiences for burn survivors where they can be just one of the kids in a safe and supportive environment.

Other ways to help support the camp is to view a wish list or make an online donation by checking out Hooiserburncamp.org or on Facebook at @HoosierBurnCamp.

For love of country they accepted death, and thus resolved all doubts, and made immortal their patriotism and their virtue." โ€” James Garfield

#EMAAppreciationWeek Spotlight: Hancock County Emergency Management

"Our unified response to the COVID-19 pandemic improved our collaboration with others by streamlining our response to the public health emergency. We quickly established a Unified Command approach at the onset of the pandemic, knowing that several agencies were responding in direct, yet unique ways. Collaborating together on the response and tasks was necessary for an overall effective county response.

"We established a task force consisting of members of each of the directly impacted agencies, including the hospital, health department, law enforcement, fire/EMS and county government officials. From there, we created a community-wide group for information-sharing purposes to ensure everyone in the county was communicating and collaborating, and on the same page. We also created a social media presence for public information by implementing an 'EMA Minute,' where we communicated to the public what the county agencies were doing to respond to the pandemic, and to protect them as our citizens."
