Our members put alot of time into these charities on their days off to fundraise for situations like this. It's an honor to to help our community when we see a need. Strong work by CAFMA 61 B-Shift.On Sunday, June 23, CAFMA Engine 61 ran a call for a possible structure fire in their first due area. Engine 61 arrived on scene to find no smoke or fire showing. After further investigation the crew determined that the occupants washing machine had failed and started smoking. The washer and dryer in the house were both fairly old and beginning to malfunction. After talking with the home owner the crew learned that the elderly lady had a recent tragedy in which she lost her husband days prior. Due to her fixed income, she was not in a position to pay for someone to come out and determine if the washing machine was repairable. The crew attempted to repair the washer, but after several attempts and trips to the store, they were unsuccessful. The crew documented the occupants contact information and informed her that they would be in touch with her in the next few days.
With a combined effort from CAFMA, Firefighter Angel Foundation, Central Arizona Firefighter Charities, and United Yavapai Firefighters the crew was able to return to the residence two days later and surprise her with a replacement washer and dryer. The crew also brought a few surprises for a young boy that lives next door, who’s family is close friends with the occupant.
Thank you to our CAFMA crews for always being willing to go the extra mile to ensure our citizens are provided with positive experiences in times of distress due to unexpected circumstances. We would also like to express gratitude to our local charities, Firefighter Angel Foundation, Central Arizona Firefighters Charities and United Yavapai Firefighters Local 3066 for their support to make experiences like this possible. ...
