Help Firefighter Matt Kieffer

Boulder Mountain Fire is a fire protection district located northwest of Boulder, CO. The department sponsors a wildfire crew to complete fuels mitigation projects and respond to emergencies. Recently, one of our crew members has been faced with a life threatening medical condition and the fire department is asking for help.

As a firefighter, Matt Kieffer has dedicated himself to being a first responder. He has put himself in harm’s way defending homes from wildfires, and responding to emergency events within our local community. He possesses a great passion for his profession and embodies the values of a firefighter in every aspect of his life. Today, the 26-year-old member of Boulder Mountain Fire Protection District, who has given so much to others, needs your help.

Matt is battling heart failure, and we are raising funds to assist with his living expenses. His illness first came to light while working on a large wildfire away from home. He subsequently went through the traumatic ordeal of an out-of-state surgery followed by travel home for additional operations.  Matt’s condition will take him out of the line of duty for up to a year and we are looking to help him financially while he is unable to work.

Your support is greatly appreciated by Matt, his local fire department, and the emergency first responder community as a whole. Thank you for helping one of our brothers during his time of need.
