Western Beverage, a local Anheuser-Busch wholesaler partner, dropped off 42 cases of canned drinking water to the Harbor (OR) Rural Fire Protection District on Sept. 17 to help support its wildfire response needs. As wildfires continue to surge in the west, this rapid response delivery will help keep frontline responders hydrated during this critical time.
The water was donated by Anheuser-Busch through a partnership with the National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC). Anheuser-Busch has a longstanding tradition of providing emergency drinking water and supplies for disaster relief efforts. The company periodically pauses beer production each year to can emergency drinking water to be ready to lend a helping hand during natural disasters and other crises.
Harbor Fire will begin distributing it to local fire departments throughout Curry County. These donations represent their ongoing commitment to help local communities when it is needed the most.
Departments in declared wildfire emergencies can continue to request water to ensure their personnel have the resources they need during these unprecedented challenges. Learn more about the Emergency Drinking Water for Wildland Firefighters Program at www.nvfc.org/water
