After years of helping families through house fires and other emergency situations, a group of CCFR firefighters realized many of these families needed help after smoke had settled. To meet this need, the Central County Community Outreach program was created.
This 501(c)3 non-profit program is funded through donations and provides assistance to families in need, conducts community education and outreach efforts and supports local community organizations.
Volunteers with the program program organize a variety of community events such as movie nights at the fire stations, and the Gifts for Kids toy drive. They also sponsor the Community Crisis Assistance Program (CCAP), which provides free counseling services to help CCFR residents navigate the aftermath of physical and mental trauma following an emergency incident in the District.
