During the week of August 26, 2017, as Hurricane Harvey slogged up the Texas coast, Katy firefighters were out in full force rescuing stranded families, cutting electricity to flooded homes, and even coordinating an emergency blood drive. As word reached them that their own homes were being inundated with floodwaters, they stayed on course and served their community exhibiting incredible self-sacrifice. Despite the fact that their own families were enduring hardship, these brave firefighters utilized their time, strength, and energy to help others.
Now, it’s our turn to help them.
Here’s a note from Harris County ESD #48, Fire Department & EMS:
Over the past two weeks, we have been working to determine how many of our members were impacted by the flooding the Harvey brought to Katy. So far, we have identified 16 members who were affected by this storm. Many of these families have had to move out of their homes with whatever they could salvage and will be displaced for many months. Through the fundraiser, we hope to help them defray some of the cost of the damage that was left behind and the cost of alternate housing while they repair their homes. All donations (100%) to this campaign will go directly to support these 16 affected families.
As a Fire and EMS agency, we depend on our men and women in tough times… Please help us to help them as we help them through their tough times. No donation is too small, we thank you for any support you can provide. If you can’t financially support this effort, please share this campaign on social media and to any groups or organizations that might be open to supporting our team.
