This last month has been a busy one for local firefighters. The King Fire started on Saturday, September 13 on Forebay Road near Polluck Pines, about 60 miles northeast of Sacramento. As the fire rapidly grew, the water supplies for the firefighters were starting to run low. On September 18, a local radio station, 100.5, announced that the firefighters were in need of drinking water and that the station was collecting water bottles to take up to the firefighters.

A Benefit & Risk Management Services (BRMS) employee heard the radio announcement on her way to work and quickly shared the news. Once the donations were collected from employees, BRMS was able to purchase and deliver 3,000 water bottles to the radio station to support the King Fire firefighters.
