Williams Firefighters Are Asking You to Help “Fill Their Boots”

Firefighters are suited up and ready for this year’s Firefighters “Fill the Boot for Burns” Boot Drive to be held on Williams April 18th & 19th, 2015.

Firefighters from Williams Fire Department will spend their day shaking their boots and volunteering their time to collect donations at the intersections of E St/Vann St, E St/4th St & HWY 20/N. Virginia Way to “Fill the Boot for Burns”.

The donations will be collected for the Firefighters Burn Institute and assure the best possible burn treatment and recovery programs are available in Northern and Central California.

The Firefighters Burn Institute (FFBI), founded in 1973 by Sacramento Area Fire Fighters, Local 522, has grown into the area’s largest firefighter-run charity.

The Firefighters Burn Institute helped establish the first burn unit in Sacramento in 1974 and continues to donate medical equipment, fund burn research and provide free burn recovery programs, including two annual summer camps for young burn survivors.

Help Fill the Boot!

The Firefighters Kids Camp held each summer for kids ages 7 to 17 years old and the Little Heroes Preschool Burn Camp for children ages 3 to 6. These camps provide burn survivor children a safe place to be just like everyone else and a positive environment to overcome challenges and achieve goals. Camp provides an opportunity for kids who have experienced terrible circumstances to see a future filled with endless possibilities.

Donations collected during annual Boot Drives have also made it possible for the Firefighters Burn Institute to pledge two million dollars toward the construction of the new Regional Burn Center at U.C. Davis Medical Center.

The new 7,900 square foot, 12-bed burn unit now provides comprehensive care with the most technologically advanced treatment options available to burn patients throughout inland northern California, northwest Nevada and southern Oregon.

Please come out and show your support and drop your donation into the boot of a firefighter April 18th & 19th…we hope to see you there!
