We are writing to you about our nephew, Captain Pete Dern, a firefighter in Fresno, CA. Pete was the firefighter who fell through the roof of a burning garage and into an inferno. You may have seen the local and national coverage of Pete. If not, the links are provided below.
Pete is in critical condition with severe burns over 70% of his body and he faces approximately 15 surgeries in the upcoming months. Pete’s wife is a teacher who has limited family medical leave. They have one child who attends college. We respectfully ask if you would post the donation link to the Dern family on your Facebook page, twitter account, or any other outlets that you might deem appropriate.
