We were very fortunate to avoid serious damage and flooding in the Brazos Valley during Hurricane Harvey. However, our Brothers and Sisters in the Fire Service on the coast were not as fortunate. The Brazos County Firefighters Association is accepting donations of supplies and gift cards at all fire stations in Brazos County including South Brazos County Fire Department-Station 1, Brazos County District 2 VFD, Brazos County Precinct 3 VFD, Brazos County Precinct 4 VFD, Bryan Fire Department, College Station Fire Department and Navasota Fire Department to be taken to the affected Fire Departments in the coming days. We are asking our community to come together and help other communities along the coast.
If you'd like to help in other ways, please message this page for instructions.
