As living proof that any idiot can win a raffle, Pierce/NFFF are giving away compartments worth of equipment: http://firehero.org/giveback/

Lots of the smaller stuff that is needed, so worth a shot, and no donation necessary but of course I'll encourage it and do it myself.

And just so I say it beforehand, if for some reason my name does get pulled it's going to a client that needs it, my department has plenty. It's about the donation for me.

I'll be up Wednesday night, helping teach a class on Thursday and wandering around the halls on Friday and Saturday. I'll be wearing my company shirt at least on Friday.
