IAFF TO ESTABLISH HURRICANE HARVEY DISASTER RELIEF
The IAFF response team arrived in Texas at the Houston Local 341 union hall, where the IAFF has established disaster relief operations. General President Schaitberger is on his way to meet with affected members and assess the situation. Thousands of IAFF members' homes are in some of the worst hit areas, and already dozens have reported severe damage by the rising waters - with many more to come. Yet members continue to work around the clock, rescuing thousands, while at the same time knowing that their own homes are likely under water.

The best way to help your brothers and sisters is with a donation to the IAFF Disaster Relief Fund, which provides assistance to IAFF members affected by major disasters.

Donate today with a tax deductible contribution online, or make a $10 donation by texting 'DISASTER' to 50555*

PLEASE DO NOT SELF DISPATCH TO THE DISASTER ZONE. For additional updates, visit the IAFF website: www.iaff.org/disasterrelief
