[ARCHIVED] Helping Those Affected by Irma

police and fire deployment NF

There is nothing more heartwarming than seeing the community come together when there are people in need. 

Our Fire Rescue Services department sent a deployment to the Keys, and our Police Services Department sent a deployment to Collier County. Many of you have been asking how you can help, by volunteering your time or providing donations.

We encourage residents to reach out to local charities, nonprofit groups and faith communities, as well as neighbors who may still be without power. 

In addition, the Boca Raton Fire Fighter & Paramedic Benevolent will be collecting donations for the Keys. Beginning Sunday, 9/17 through Thursday 9/21, volunteers will be managing collections from 9-5 daily at Fire Station Number 1 located at 1151 N Federal Hwy.

Items needed in the Keys are:

  • Hand sanitizer
  • Bleach
  • Bottled water
  • Non perishable food items
  • Camping equipment, including:
  • Tents
  • Tarps
  • Canopies
  • Coolers
  • Batteries
  • Fans
  • Lanterns
  • Flashlights
  • Cots
  • Air mattresses
