    From the website:

    As an emergency services community, its our duty to ensure that the hundreds -- if not thousands -- of firefighters, rescue workers and first responders impacted by Hurricane Katrina has a future that enables them personally, and as fire, rescue and EMS organizations, able to land on solid ground.

    It may be days or weeks before the number of fire departments and stations (and perhaps several thousand of their own responders) impacted by Katrina becomes clear. We're asking fire, rescue and EMS departments, organizations and companies to 'Adopt a Firehouse'.

    This site will compile a list of fire departments interested in participating in this program for now, and then work with local, state and national fire service groups to facilitate getting fire departments connected to each other.

    It is possible that there will be many more departments offering support and services than departments/stations in need. For this reason, please do not hesitate to submit your information no matter the size or limit of your abilities.

    Whether your department is able to donate any amount of used equipment to adopted departments, offer personnel and/or materials to assist in the rebuilding, coordinate a clothing or food drive for an adopted department's members, or simply just be available for moral support ... departments in need NEED you.

    This site is being supported by the IAFC, NVFC, NFFF, and several other fire service organizations. If you haven't taken a look yet, please do!
