The members of East Jefferson Fire Rescue believe that serving the community goes beyond firefighting and EMS activities. Both our volunteer and career staff participate in many different fundraising activities and charitable organizations.
Northwest Burn Foundation
Collecting money in Port Hadlock for the Northwest Burn Foundation. The money collected goes to help burn victims and their families. Every year on the first Saturday in October, many members stand in front of grocery stores and in intersections collecting money in their boots.
Raising Money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society
EJFR members participate in the Scott’s Firefighter Stair Climb held yearly at the Columbia Tower in Seattle. Firefighters climb 69 stories in full combat gear and SCBA to reach the top of the 2nd highest building west of the Mississippi.
Fundraising by the Firefighter’s Helpers meets many needs
Every April and October the Helpers host a delicious, pancake breakfast. With the earnings from these breakfasts the group has donated thousands of dollars for needed emergency response equipment and educational materials.
The Helpers also help host memorials for fire department “family” members.
