Carr Fire Devastation

Yesterday the Carr Fire  in Shasta County ravaged the small communities of Shasta and Keswick before jumping the Sacramento River and burning houses on the outskirts of Redding, CA.  One of those homes belonged to Jason and Shyla Campbell.

Jason has been a valued employee of GFP Enterprises for over a decade protecting residents, resources and properties while fighting wildfires across the United States.   His commitment to helping others is second to none.    Outside of fire season, Jason has also recently provided leadership and support in emergency responder base camps resulting from Hurricane's Irma and Harvey.   He did this in light of a fear of flying that he overcame so that he could help people. 

While leading a 20 person handcrew engaged in fighting the Ferguson Fire burning near Ahwanhnee, CA, Jason's wife Shyla and children were safely evacuated along with over 10 thousand area residents.

Upon returning back to Redding this afternoon with his fire crew, Jason found that his home and everything inside had been consumed by the fast moving blaze.   I know it  is tearing Jason up inside that he was so far away performing the job he loves, unable to protect his own family and save his own property.

Jason is a proud, hard working man, great husband, father and friend.  The exact kind of giving person that deserves support so he can begin rebuilding his life.   Let's give back to this extraordinary family in need and show Jason how much we love and appreciate his unselfish sacrifices.   

This is an alarm call to anyone that can help - Please do what you can to help a brother in need.  

Thank you!
