Hello All,
I am writing to tell you about my friend Travis Johnson. He is one of the best men I know. He is caring, sincere and would do anything for anyone. The kind of guy who would give you the shirt off his back.

Travis is currently a Cal Fire firefighter at Station 20 in Nevada City, Ca. He had recently been promoted and was planning to attend the Fire Academy this coming June.

Two weeks ago (4/5/2014) Travis was involved in a horrific accident. He was badly burned from his ankles to his mid thigh, up his butt and lower back. He has undergone skin grafts and we are anxiously awaiting his 7 Day Post-Op to see if they took. If all goes well, Travis will be released from the hospital in +/- 3 weeks.

This accident could not have come a worst time. Travis was 3 weeks away from marring the girl of his dreams. I’m not sure how I got this far without telling how stubborn Travis is. That being said he is still getting married this weekend. Instead of the ranch wedding they planned, Travis and Alissa will be getting married at the UC Davis Medial Center this Saturday, April 19th.

The healing process will be a long one, and we are doing everything possible to help these amazing people. We have set up a donation site in the hopes to relieve some of the financial burden so they can focus on the healing process.

I was hoping that you could post the below link on your website. Over the last several weeks I have experienced how close the firefighting community is, and I would like to give everyone the opportunity to help a fellow firefighter.

Also attached is a photo of Travis and his soon to be wife, Alissa.

Thank You,
