In-kind contribution

Did you know that you may help out the Crown King Fire Department simply by logging the hours that you spend cleaning up brush and slash on your property?  For every hour that you spend making your own home fire wise, the CKFD will receive an In-Kind contribution. This grant will aid in our financial obligations for ordering state services to reduce fuels and keep our town safe during current and future fire seasons.  The only way the CKFD is able to receive this In-Kind contribution is if you complete a simple timesheet that documents your efforts.  This timesheet is available at Fire Station 1, or click the button below for a copy that may be e-mailed back to the Station.  Your help is greatly appreciated and contributes in making our town safe!

Please note raking pine needles is no longer accepted as in-Kind contribution. Must fill out one sheet per person, working on property.  

Thank you kindly!
