December 14, 2017, CalFire apparatus engineer Cory Iverson lost his life in the line of duty while fighting the Thomas fire in Ventura California. Cory was a 9 year veteran of CalFire, and selflessly gave his life protecting the life and property of others. Cory is survived by his 2 year old daughter Evie, and by his wife who is currently expecting their second child. I have started this gofundme to help Corys wife and children through this incredibly difficult time for them. The entirety of this gofundme will go directly to Corys family. If you're able to donate, please do. If not, please say a prayer for Corys family. My name is Grant, I too am a firefighter who is helping out with the Southern California fires. I do not know Cory, but as a fellow firefighter, I would consider Cory my brother, and consider it my duty to help his family in this most difficult of times. Thank you for your help.
