Black Forest Crosses for Losses, has been growing out of tragedy since fire ripped through their community just last summer. But for 2014 they're branching out past the Black Forest.
"All of our volunteers have decided whether they choose to, jump on and go with us or not. And so we have a special group that's getting all of their FEMA training and going in for their medical training and so forth," said Crosses for Losses Director, Amanda Davis.
Director Amanda Davis says they're gearing up for yet another fire season and hoping to help wherever they can.
"I hear a lot of people having concern toward the Broadmoor area. I've thought since the beginning that we're looking more Palmer Lake, Monument area. But no matter where it happens it's not going to be a good thing, and we all need to be ready," said Davis.
That's why Davis is asking for water, money and an emergency vehicle if possible so they can do the most good in the worst scenario. But at the end of the day they're here to serve, and hope everyone can see that.
"I think it's important that people realize that organizations like this can survive, and they can make a difference, and I think we make a huge impact in our community," said Davis.
Currently, "Crosses for Losses," is bulking up their donation pile gearing up for the summer in hopes they never have to use it.
