National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day honors all those who lost their lives when Japan attacked Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. More than 3,500 Americans lost their lives or were wounded on that solemn day. 🇺🇲

The U.S. Navy established the Naval Station at Pearl Harbor in 1908. Once abundant with pearl oysters in the harbor, the Hawaiians named it Wai Momi which means "Pearl Waters."

Pearl Harbor offers several sites in memory of those who served during the bombing. The Pearl Harbor National Memorial dedicates sites in memory of the crews lost on December 7th, 1941.

For many of the crew of the USS Utah, USS Arizona, and USS Oklahoma, Pearl Harbor is their final resting place. The memorials serve as a place of honor to those service members lost during the attack. 🇺🇲

#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving, so let's harness the power of people and technology to raise money for our Colorado Firefighters! 🔥🚒
Meta plans to match up to $8 Million in qualifying donations (the CSFFF is a 501(C)(3) Corporation) so today is a great day to double your contribution! 💰💰
Because of your generosity, we are able to support Colorado Firefighters and their families when they need it most, just like they do for you and me every day! 💪
Why not be a part of giving more, doing more, and caring more for those who care for us?
✨ Be the change you want to see in this world ✨

The National Volunteer Fire Council will be hosting a webinar TOMORROW, December 1st at noon MST to explain the changes to the FY 2021 AFG program, and to discuss tips for submitting successful applications.
The application period for the allocation of AFG funding ends December 17!

🔥🔥Eligible departments should take time to review these important changes🔥🔥
▪️Funding for FY 2021 has increased to $414 million. This is due to an increase in AFG funding (to $324 million) and the one-time addition of American Rescue Plan Act funding ($90 million).
▪️Micro-grants of less than $50,000 will aim to fund no less than 25% of the allocation for career, volunteer, and combination departments. This should increase the funding availability for smaller projects.
▪️Pay-per-call personnel and stipend payments to personnel will now be included under the definition of a combination department.
▪️Personal protective equipment (PPE), both turnout gear and SCBA, definitions have been refined to include old, obsolete, and non-compliant PPE as a high priority for replacement.
10% of the available funding for vehicles will aim to be allocated for ambulances.

Hi friends! I'm doing a school project that helps me learn more about firemen. I'm attaching a link for a survey that'll take less than 5 minutes any responses help! Thank you so so much!!!
I'm now a retired firefighter and run my own business. Wholesale apparel, screen print, embroidery, graphic design, etc. I wanted to reach out to all firefighters and firefighter union/departments and offer discounted apparel, hats, etc for all. If you have any fundraisers or are in need of tees, hats, or anything, feel free to browse my site, email or call for any inquiries. Stay safe!!
Thanks so much to the CSFFA for the support on the NVFC and I'd like to suggest to our departments to check out the NVFC site and become a member. Individual cost is $18.00 per member and comes with lots of perks. Check out the link below:
Dear Colleagues, I share with you the link of an article related to forest fires in Peru, prepared by Dr. María Manta, professor at UNALM; The article was presented a few days ago at the "8th International Conference on Forest Fire Research", held in Coimbra, Portugal. https://www.researchgate.net/publication/329327829_Evaluation_of_wildfire_danger_in_the_Peruvian_Andes_First_step_for_its_reduction_and_adaptation/stats Regards
