Help Surrounding Counties Devastated by Wildfires

Date: 4/20/2011

HOOD COUNTY, TEXAS: Recent wildfires across the State have caused wide spread damage and the loss of hundreds of homes. Hood County Volunteer Fire Departments have been helping fight the fires in Palo Pinto County since Friday April15th . A request for donations of various items was sent out to not only to support them
but the other firefighters on the fire ground as well.

Due to the overwhelming generosity of the citizens, we have met the needs for food and non-perishable goods for firefighters and evacuees. However, if you have already collected food or non-perishable goods, please direct them to the following official collection point:

FOOD and NON-PERISHABLE ITEMS: May be taken to the Hood Fire Marshal/Emergency Management Office at 201 W. Bridge Street Granbury.

CLOTHING AND HOUSEHOLD GOODS: Please contact your local American Red Cross, Salvation Army, or religious organization.

ANY FINANCIAL CONTRIBUTIONS TO: The Hood County Firefighter Association or your local Volunteer Fire Department. The account for HCFFA is through First National Bank and just let them know it is for the Palo Pinto Fire Fund. Donated funds to the HCFFA will be distributed among all VOLUNTEER (not state or federal) fire departments responding to the PK Complex fire. Funds will be distributed on a pro-rated basis depending on the number of man-hours the department spent on the incident in order to help repair equipment used on the fire that was not owned/maintained by Hood County.

On behalf of all the firefighters I want to THANK YOU for your support.
