A letter from the Cal Fire Local 2881 Auxiliary,
Fighting fire is a dangerous profession.
If something were to happen to you or your family, it is nice to know the Auxiliary will be there for you. Today’s busy lifestyles demand much of our time and energy. However, the success of our Auxiliary depends upon you and your participation to help other firefighting families. We encourage you to get involved. Your participation as an Auxiliary member will help other firefighters and their families and is greatly appreciated and rewarding.
The Cal Fire Auxiliary provides physical and emotional support and works behind the scenes assisting firefighters and families during hospitalizations and emergencies. This year the Auxiliary has made contributions to families that suffered loss due to job-related Cancer and LODD, as well as supporting the children that were left behind. We helped with providing food for a spouses support event in Redding. We also contributed to a spa day for a wife that lost her ff husband suddenly. There were injury accidents that we made up gift crates full of goodies, magazines, and gifts. The Auxiliary gave items in support of the Benevolent Foundations annual golf tournament at Cache Creek.
If you are interested in joining the Auxiliary, please go to www.calfirel2881.org under “charities” and you will find our contact info and application to become a member.
The Auxiliary welcomes anyone who is either spouses, significant others, parents, siblings, or adult children of any active, retired or deceased Cal Fire employee or members in good standing of Cal Fire Firefighters Local 2881. For a $15 yearly donation, you can make a difference.
Please don’t hesitate to contact any of the officers if there is a need for Auxiliary assistance to a Cal Fire employee or family member. We are here to support you.
