Dear Friends of the Fire District,
In 2015, Woodside Fire celebrates its 90th year serving our community. Ninety years of excellence. We invite you today to make a gift to Woodside-Portola Valley Fire Protection Foundation’s annual fund to help our fire district continue to meet the needs of our changing community.
Double the impact of your gift!
Long-time Portola Valley residents – and avid supporters of the fire district’s CERPP emergency response and preparedness program – Onnolee and Bud Trapp will generously match NEW donor contributions to the fire foundation. To encourage their neighbors in the district to get involved, Onnolee and Bud will match gifts of any size received by December 31, 2014 from first-time donors, dollar for dollar, to a total of $10,000. Donate today and double the impact of your contribution
Funded this year with your contributions:
- Improved emergency medical services: cardiac monitor/defibrillators to replace outdated units on support trucks, enabling paramedics to provide consistent all-life support (ALS) from all vehicles.
- New station planning: preliminary analysis for our new headquarters station on Woodside Road.
- Mobilized community training: a new vehicle and trailer complete with AV system that enables WFPD to bring essential training directly to your neighborhood.
- Expanded fire prevention: a second chipper to expand the fuel reduction program.
- Enhanced public education: an expanded smoke alarm program to targeted neighborhoods.
- Added after-the-incident help: a specialized booklet for residents recovering from natural disaster or medical emergency.
