Byrd also wants to replenish an “emergency reserve fund” that the foundation once used as a source of immediate relief for VFDs working wildfires.
“We were able to just go out there and rent bulldozers and get money to them, immediately, when these big fires broke out,” he explained. “So, I’d really like to look at building that back up. When these big fires break out, that money can really come in handy to get it under control quickly, rather than wait for the state to give resources.”
