Firefighter Loses Home!

Our Firefighter needs your help!

As someone who has fought hard to save the lives and property of others throughout Mono County, Firefighter-EMT Ben Paladino of the Mountain Warfare Training Center Fire Department lost his home to the Mountain View Fire on November 17, 2020.

Our firefighters show selflessness again and again when they place everything about themselves last while ensuring their communities come first. Now, in this tragic turn of events, it is time to rise up for one of them!

We are looking for those who are willing to come together and help one of our heroes and his family make it through a tough time!

Please donate what you can and share this campaign all over so we can help Firefighter Ben and his family get moving toward recovering from this; and ensure that Ben knows his sacrifices are honored and remembered by us all!

Thank you Ben for showing the unselfish character that does our Thin Red Line so proud!
