"After Fire" kits to be given to fire departments

Posted:

CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL)--  The Salvation Army and the Juvenile Fire Setter Coalition is distributing "After Fire" kits to fire departments in Linn County on Tuesday.

The kits are made up of basic living essentials such as shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrushes, deodorant, calling cards, gift certificates for food, children's toys, diapers, and other everyday necessities.

They were assembled as part of a community service project to provide families affected by fire with the things they need to start over again.

The kits were funded thorough donations to the Juvenile Fire Setter Coalition.

Fire departments in Linn County will hand them out to fire victims to help them begin the recovery process.
