Oklahoma Firefighters Need Our Help (Includes locations of Fire Depts)

FIREFIGHTERS ARE IN NEED OF HELP!

Black diamond (cards) undershirts
Black diamond (cards) tube socks
Black diamond (cards) underwear
Black diamond (cards) moleskin to prevent blisters
Black diamond (cards) cold/frozen hand towels (t-shirts soaked in cold water and put individually into Ziplock bags to cool off in between fighting the fires.)

FIREFIGHTERS NEED FOOD
Black diamond (cards) quick & simple, high carb & protein, low grease:
Black diamond (cards) protein/power bars
Black diamond (cards) fresh fruit, (cool and full of water to hydrate them) peaches, grapes, bananas oranges,  watermelon, canteloupe, lemons, limes,
Black diamond (cards) vitamin C tablets
Black diamond (cards) cold water & Gatorade*  (Pedialyte has been working much better for some of the firefighters in the heat.)
Black diamond (cards) paper towels, paper plates, plastic ware
Black diamond (cards) ice chest full of ice
Black diamond (cards) sugar free gum
Black diamond (cards) potassium  to help with cramps

 

Walmart sells them but you may want to make some cool ties for Firemen and fire victims working in the heat.  Cooling bandana/ties/neck coolers/headband/wrap/scarf made from 100% cotton fabric  are great to wear for  to keep in your first aid kit for heat relief. 

 Soaked in cool or cold water for approx. 20 minutes, the  water crystals* will hydrate and expand into a gel. The cooling bandanna/tie around the neck/forehead  will help keep one cool for  hours in the warm and hot weather.

The fabric will feel dry, but the gel inside the bandana/tie feels cool to the touch and will help keep you cool and comfortable in the heat for all day. It can be used over and over again by  rehydrating  (soaking) it and  gel will stay hydrated for several days. The polymer water crystals are safe and non-toxic. Hand wash the cool bandana/tie gently with mild soap and hang it to air dry. If you don’t use it for a few days the crystals will dry out to their original state (hard crystal form) and then can be rehydrated and used again and again….100’s of times! 

*Find Schultz Water Absorbing Crystals at Walmart, usually in the gardening supplies. 

Here are step by step instructions:

    Freedom Hills Volunteer Fire Department
    35677 W 91st Street South in Mannford, Oklahoma
    There is a public business meeting on Saturday, August 11, 2012 at 7:30pm at Freedom Hills Fire Department to try and stop the petition for disbandment. We would appreciate all your help and support at the meeting, everyone is welcome to attend. This is a volunteer fire department, not a state funded. Freedom Hill Fire Department has the second largest fire district in Creek County and has been serving the community for 30+ years. If there was no fire department, your home insurance rates would increase. The fire department taking over the area would have to come from father away, increasing response times. The fire department ran out of funds during the recent wildfires and started using their own money to continue fighting the fires. Please keep in mind that the men and women that volunteer and fight these fires are everyday people. When the need comes to protect their community they never hesitate. This is their time of need, please come and give them your support. You can contact the Freedom Hills for more information at 918-352-4102. Thank you for your time and support.
