The holiday season is upon us a time of joy. But I moved here yet sadly not everyone feels like celebrating sometimes it's hard to make it through the holidays and sometimes you just need a helping hand. And that's where we've come. This letter came from that makes. He's the fire chief for the retail fire protection district. He's a rainy today asking. For help and raising funds to help a dear friend of ours who's badly burned on Saturday December 2. Scott the master was taking it to the street was injured on Saturday when appropriate grill exploded he suffered second and third degree burns besides feeding the homeless. Scott is organization response to scenes were indices first responders haven't expanded presence and support them by providing water food and coffee. I can tell you firsthand nothing tastes as good as a fresh cup of coffee at 3 AM when your wet cold and exhausted. Scott in his organization responded to hundreds of incidents in our area. All the while never asking for opinion for doing so Scott's medical bills are piling up easily able to work whose family has started to go funding paged out. Retail fire protection district was one of the first to contribute is challenged other first responders do the same. And that you Jolie years ago when. Who with Huckabee and touched my deal they'll get the word out about Scott is need to give it time that they spy chief. Some news. Yeah. They had sent with Fiat with the story obviously he's the founder of the ticket to the streets when he was injured over the weekend cooking for the homeless. He'd been badly burned on Saturday by that propane gas grill and say you blew up and pushed him back six feet. Back into the truck that was sitting nearby his face his arms and his hands uses obviously what all scarred. He again was preparing to help with the people with. The homeless for the during the accident so. Jake and fire chief that. The show. So I've got your letter now tell me tell me about. I'm Scott and in what he's done with you and what happened. You know I ordered don't have much really. You know we got CP or worse. Yet the fact that while what people. And that's virtually a person years ago. Yeah members get off your failures all Chile is something to get it through and got a bit. Of actually. You don't before. Chill. While I'd say they're often more than. What if there. And so we've heard about. There were at. And I meet the a little. While they are looking at yeah. They're everyday deal is what they. So you've got one that I didn't they'll learn about it though obviously. There is artery that Elton without. Without our laws or. Won't we caught in the fire for the everybody that they're getting that is it at all let me get well. We assume that that. Thank you everybody all your first responders and the guys.

You know and and we never know the story the people we see you know all we see is a pilot rags dirty human being. Out there. Sometimes I think we tell ourselves and speak as we need to make sense.

Organization works tirelessly with the and he's doing we've charge on his own it's a volunteered he is then put into life and situation in his there. Which he lives his existence is suddenly.
