Police and Fire Donation Solicitation Phone Calls
Please note that the Boise Police Department does not solicit for donations, however, other police organizations do solicit throughout the year.According to the Fraternal Order of Police (FOP), they are not conducting any fundraising at this time. In a few months, they will start the Heroes vs Heroes event, however, they will send out letters to surrounding agencies and notify the Better Business Bureau beforehand. The Boise Police Association (BPA) finished the Christmas Shop-with-a-Cop soliciting back on December 12th and will not start again until May in preparation for the Back to School event.
Boise Fire Department
Boise Fire Chief Dennis Doan says the department has received several inquiries lately from citizens who say they received a phone call from someone claiming to be from the Boise Fire Department asking for a cash donation for the firefighters. The phone number is originating from area code 209.
The Chief wants to remind citizens the fire department does not do telephone solicitations. Nor does the Boise Fire Union. Anyone calling on the phone asking for donations is unknown and not affiliated with the fire department.
The Boise Fire Union Burnout Fund does operate on donations but again, does NOT do telephone solicitations.

Warm Springs Mesa Fire Wise Report – January 2014
Attached (see links below) are the most recent of BLM reports on the Fuels Reduction activities that we have been engaged in here on the Mesa with the technical support of the BLM and the SW Idaho RC&D Council providing fiscal oversight.
Please note that the Quail Testing site for the control of sage brush (above the Park) does not show up in this report and the number of chipping and fuel removal projects funded by the City of Boise either through Reinvestment Grants or Mini Grants (2009 – 2013) are separately funded and therefore are not reflected here.

Your MNA Board is posting this information on behalf of the trail system and we hope that some of you will be interested in helping out.
