Miami Valley Firefighters THANK YOU for Donating Aluminum Cans for Burn Victims

The men and women of Dayton Firefighters IAFF Local 136 are dedicated to more than just fighting fires and saving lives. For the past 20 years, the Dayton Firefighters have held the annual Burn Unit Golf Outing. In the beginning, it was a small golf outing dedicated to collecting funds to donate to the Miami Valley Burn Units in an attempt to give aid to the men and women of the Miami Valley that suffer from the physical and psychological pain of burns received by fire. Today, the golf outing is very well known in the area.

The day of the tournament, we have so many participants that both courses at Kitty Hawk have to be used by nearly 250 Miami Valley area golfers. The Burn Tournament earns nearly $10,000 annually to be given to the Miami Valley Firefighters Burn Foundation and further dispersed to Children’s Medical Center and Miami Valley Hospital. The Dayton Firefighters also participate in the Aluminum Cans for Burn Victims program by collecting cans from area restaurants, sports complexes, and the public to increase the amount we can give to the Burn Foundation. In the past year, we have collected nearly $7000 in aluminum cans. These combined efforts achieve nearly $20,000 a year to aid in the recovery from burns received by fire.

Originally sponsored in the 1980s by the Alcoa Company in an effort to promote recycling nationwide, the Aluminum Cans for Burn Victims program has raised more than $250,000 for burn victims throughout the Miami Valley. Through the efforts of individual citizens, small businesses and large corporations, Miami Valley firefighters have been able to collect what otherwise may become trash, and turn it into needed money to assist victims of fire.

A self-sustained program, not requiring any outside funding, multiple trailers and collection sites are located throughout the Miami Valley for citizens and companies to drop off their aluminum cans. Other than operating expenses, all funds collected are donated to assist children and victims of fire throughout the Miami Valley.

A special thanks to our Firefighters in Springfield, Fairborn, Huber Heights, Washington Township, Dayton, Miami Township / Enon, and the Wayne Boosters, without whose efforts this program would not be a success.

Cans may be bagged or dropped-off individually, whatever is most convenient for the donor. Crushed cans are acceptable, and preferred as they allow more cans to be loaded in the same trailer. Please empty any partially filled cans before donating, as they incorrectly increase weight. Also, with time, partially filled beverages will eventually leak through porous trash bags, and create a mess at your collection site. Consider where you locate your collection site at home or work, as summer-time brings bees and insects. If outdoors, also take into consideration the wind. PLEASE, NO PAPER, PLASTICS OR OTHER TRASH. Reference the list below to locate your nearest Drop-Off Location.

According to the OAPFF, they are experiencing problems with non-members acquiring our OAPFF/IAFF license plates. The OAPFF is currently working on a more secure process for our members to obtain the OAPFF license plate, in the interim, requests for the documents that are required to obtain the Professional Firefighter license plate should be made through the Local President. We hope the members understand that this is simply a step in ensuring the law enforcement community, the public as well as our membership that those who choose to display the IAFF license plate are truly Ohio's Professional Firefighters.
