What a great story! Way to support your community guys 🚒

On Sunday, June 23, CAFMA Engine 61 ran a call for a possible structure fire in their first due area. Engine 61 arrived on scene to find no smoke or fire showing. After further investigation the crew determined that the occupants washing machine had failed and started smoking. The washer and dryer in the house were both fairly old and beginning to malfunction. After talking with the home owner the crew learned that the elderly lady had a recent tragedy in which she lost her husband days prior. Due to her fixed income, she was not in a position to pay for someone to come out and determine if the washing machine was repairable. The crew attempted to repair the washer, but after several attempts and trips to the store, they were unsuccessful. The crew documented the occupants contact information and informed her that they would be in touch with her in the next few days.

With a combined effort from CAFMA, Firefighter Angel Foundation, Central Arizona Firefighter Charities, and United Yavapai Firefighters the crew was able to return to the residence two days later and surprise her with a replacement washer and dryer. The crew also brought a few surprises for a young boy that lives next door, who’s family is close friends with the occupant.

Thank you to our CAFMA crews for always being willing to go the extra mile to ensure our citizens are provided with positive experiences in times of distress due to unexpected circumstances. We would also like to express gratitude to our local charities, Firefighter Angel Foundation, Central Arizona Firefighters Charities and United Yavapai Firefighters Local 3066 for their support to make experiences like this possible.

A big thank you to Rhonda Snyder and the Wade Parker Memorial Foundation for including us in the We Care Project 2019. The We Care Project puts together care bags to help make firefighter's lives a little more comfortable during the first 48 (or more) hours of an incident. The contents are essential items like socks, disposable razors, wet wipes, and snacks. Just to name a few. This year also included an Isagenix shaker bottle, meal replacements and energy drinks. GCFFA was able to help in a small way by donating water proof bags to house the items. Thanks for taking care of us Rhonda! We appreciate all you do!!

This event is only a week away!! Such a great foundation with a great cause!

Hi guys. I did the half marathon on 23rd September and I haven't been able to access the results (I am not able to access it through your link).
