American Farmers & Ranchers to Present $200,000 to Rural Fire Departments for Wildfire Expenses

Fri, 28 Apr 2017 15:09:41 CDT

American Farmers & Ranchers to Present $200,000 to Rural Fire Departments for Wildfire Expenses Oklahoma Rural fire departments that helped fight the early March wildfires in northwest Oklahoma will be rewarded for their efforts May 20th when AFR Insurance will present $1,500 checks to each department involved.


The money will be presented during an invitation-only luncheon at the Woodward County Fairgrounds. The Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food and Forestry provided AFR with a list of 140 fire departments that were involved in the fire.


"Words cannot express the appreciation AFR Insurance has for fire departments' efforts in protecting lives and property during the tragic March wildfires," Justin Cowan, CEO, AFR Insurance, said.


The event is called "Funds for Fire Fighters - AFR Answers the Call."


"We want to honor the dedication and sacrifices made by these courageous fire fighters, many of whom had to leave their own property while fighting to protect their neighbor's property," Terry Detrick, AFR president, said.


It is anticipated the fire departments will use the money to defray costs associated with fighting the fires.


"We know some equipment was damaged in the process of fighting these fires," Detrick said.
