After the Fire

Since 2015, Dayton firefighters and community partners including United Way of the Greater Dayton Area, the American Red Cross and the Salvation Army have gathered at the end of summer to assemble "After the Fire" kits. These care packages are distributed to victims of devastating home fires in the city of Dayton. Where possible, these kits are provided to fire victims before firefighters depart a fire scene. The kits contain a collection of basic supplies (including toiletries, flashlights, blankets, clothing, etc.) that can help with the daunting task of recovering from a home fire.
