A Reminder From Everett Fire About Gifts And Visits To The City’s Fire Stations

November 18, 2020

Everett Fire

On Tuesday, Everett Fire posted the following to their Facebook Page. For those who don’t follow that medium here is their message.

PAYING IT FORWARD! We are so appreciative to serve the great people of our Everett community. With the rise of COVID-19, our firefighters have returned to wearing a full attire of PPE on all medical calls, and our stations continue to be closed to visitors (unless seeking medical/fire assistance). We know many of our residents enjoy showing their gratitude for the holiday seasons upon us by delivering food and tokens of appreciation to the fire stations. However, we know COVID-19 has negatively impacted many people in our community, and we ask that you pay these kind gestures forward to support those who need assistance. If you would like to support one of the many charities that our firefighters support each year, here are a few of them:

• Christmas House (https://christmas-house.org/)
• Volunteers of America Food Bank
o Adopt a family for the holidays (https://bit.ly/3lI6mTd)
• The Burned Children Recovery Foundation
• Homage Senior Services (https://homage.org/nutrition/)
Each year, our firefighters provide a holiday meal at the
Senior Center; with the center’s closure, Homage has
continued to provide meals at a drive-up/walk-up service at
the center.
• Firefighter Stairclimb for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society
• Any charity of your choice.

Of course, if you would like to send a note, card, or have your child draw or color a message, we love sharing those with our department! You can mail those to 2930 Wetmore Avenue, Everett, WA 98201.

Please know we are truly grateful for your support and generosity, and we appreciate your understanding
