Thousand Oaks, CA. – In conjunction with the 2021 wildfire season, grassroots political organization Firefighters & EMS Fund will be launching a local field office in Thousand Oaks, California. This “First Responder Political Action” field office will officially open its doors in mid-June, as the state and local governments prepare for another potentially disastrous wildfire season.
The mission of the Firefighters and EMS Fund is simple: to provide a grassroots voice for firefighters across the country in the state and local political process. The political organization supports ballot initiatives and workings to elect political leaders at the state and local level that understand firefighters’ and public safety officers’ interests.
Firefighters and EMS Fund is already engaged in projects to support local ballot measures and firefighter unions in need. The organization has supported other initiatives and projects in California over the last few years, including an initiative in 2020 to assist the citizen-run Oceano 911 Committee with their effort to pass Measure A-20 in Oceano, California. The measure requested local voters to support renewal of the town’s participation in a joint protection agreement with two neighboring cities.
This field office in Thousand Oaks will allow the organization to continue and increase their efforts supporting firefighters and emergency responders in California with on-the-ground and local efforts.
“Having this local base of operations will allow us to engage in projects specific to wildland firefighters and the unique issues they face in the western part of the country. From there, we will be able to engage with supporters and build a grassroots movement geared towards legislation benefiting the particular needs of these firefighters,” said Executive Director of Firefighters & EMS Fund Jane Porter.
