    Even if you are not a NASCAR or Wildland fan…

    Please vote for this car. If this paint scheme wins, it will pace the 2010 Nascar All-star race. Also, $4000.00 will be donated to the Wildland Firefighter Foundation that supports the families of our fallen Wildland Firefighters. You can vote once per day, so save the link on your favorites. And since your reading this, please spread the word.

    Don't the firefighter unions take care of the families of the fallen?

    No they do not. They might help with the funeral details, but I do not know of one Firefighter union that takes care of the families long term after a death.

    More of these kind of benefits lie within the individual agency, if any. As far as I know, Firefighters need to buy Life Insurance just like anyone else.
