Fire Service friends,
As you are aware, each year the Illinois Fire Safety Alliance (IFSA) hosts a weeklong camp for children that are survivors of burn injuries – Camp “I Am Me.” No other IFSA program has received greater attention from the fire service, medical community, general public, and media then burn camp. Sadly, this year’s camp has been cancelled due to the pandemic, but we will have a virtual event the week of July 19th. Work is in full swing with more than 20 different sessions already planned!
We need your assistance! Every year at camp, many departments send apparatus to participate in a parade where campers ride in the vehicles with sirens going while waving to a crowd of onlookers. As part of this year’s camp we want to create a video that will duplicate the experience for campers. Our hope is to have fire departments create a video of your personal message to the camp with sirens and horns. 
Please send your video here by Wednesday June 17th. Make sure you identify your department, village, or fire district name in the file name.
We hope that the campers can count on your support. With camp scheduled for mid-July, we’d like to receive all submissions as soon as possible to start editing the video. Thank you for whatever support or assistance you can offer!
With grateful appreciation,
Philip Zaleski
Executive Director
Illinois Fire Safety Alliance
