This is an opportunity for us to celebrate with each other while raising awareness of the Unity Fire Association.”

Unity Fire Association Director, Garland Jakson has always wanted to help former colleagues who need the help. Garland, who is a former firefighter and has lost family members to fire stated that, “getting the chance to help former colleagues has been a lifelong desire. It’s a chance to serve individuals whom have been public servants and deserve the help.”
