Support Firefighter Arlydia Bufford’s Family

On the evening of 22 June, several off duty Kinloch Fire Protection District Firefighters were eating dinner after they finished an EMT class. A gunman entered the restaurant and after shooting two other people, he turned the gun on one of our own. Arlydia Bufford, A 20 year old female firefighter who has been with the department just over 6 months was shot multiple times and was rushed to the hospital by Police Officers on Scene. She is fighter and we will stand by her for the long road ahead. With her family's blessing the Kinloch Fire Protection District is hosting this Gofundme Page to raise money towards her family during her recovery.  I am the Public Information Officer for the Kinloch Fire Protection District, All of the proceeds will be given to her Family.
