My 12-year-old’s father was killed fighting fires in Idaho this summer. I
have spoken with the National Fallen Firefighters’ Foundation about
future help with college and they said that because Doug was on contract,
they would not be able to help my son. I don’t understand why there
is no help for families of contract firefighters. Is there anyone out there that
has been through this before who can explain to me why there isn’t a
Foundation for Fallen Wildland firefighters who are on contract? Why
does the government treat them so different?
