The following is a news release from the Idaho Falls Fire Department: Earlier this week, the Idaho Falls Police Department (IFPD) was alerted that approximately $1,500 worth of life-saving equipment was stolen from firefighters passing through Idaho Falls on their way home to Montana after fighting fires in California. Due to the outpouring of support from community members wanting to help the Park County Rural Fire District 1, the Idaho Falls Fire Department has established a secure fund at Idaho Central Credit Union (ICCU) for all donations. The deadline for donations is November 23. “Shortly after the story was shared by the local media, IFFD and IFPD began receiving phone calls and comments on our social media pages from community members wanting to help out and show support for their firefighters,” states Kerry Hammon.
