Little Faye has been at home while her Daddy fights the Thompson Fire. When she heard of the recent loss of a firefighter on that same fire, she asked if there was any way she could help raise money to buy presents for his children and others who had lost their parents. She first gathered all of her chore money to start the donation. She quickly had more than $20 and asked her mom if she could keep going to $1000. 

Wildland Firefighters families do not receive any benefits after a fatality for up to 3 months. Their foundation steps in to support those families immediate financial needs. The WFF also offers long term grief recovery for families of fallen and support our injured wildland firefighters who only receive 60% of their base pay after an injury. They also lose their overtime and don’t always have a way to support their families. Unfortunately, dealing with OWCP is not an easy task and the Foundation can sometimes assist if it is a line of duty as long as it is within our mission. The Foundation can often fly family members to the bedside of the injured, who are often states away from where they live. We also work with long term trauma effects on the firefighters and their families who are exposed to horrific incidents when a firefighter is killed or seriously injured while fighting fires in remote areas.
