Portland Firefighters Helping to Keep Maine Warm

Portland Firefighters Local 740 Donate to Keep ME Warm Fund

Portland Firefighters Local 740 is once again pleased to make a very generous donation this year to The Opportunity Alliance’s Keep ME Warm Fund. "Keep ME Warm" provides heating assistance to income eligible households in Cumberland County to pay for a portion of their annual heating expenses. “Firefighters often see firsthand the struggle many Maine families have in heating their homes,” said Phillip LaRou, Vice President of IAFF Local 740. “This is why Local 740 feels so strongly about this donation. If local 740 can prevent one structure fire, our donation will be well worth it.”
