Firefighters Alliance Seeks Sponsorships for Fire Ball

Jackson Browne and Greg Leisz to perform

The Santa Barbara Firefighters Alliance is holding a Fire Ball fundraising event on Sunday, May 7, at Dos Pueblos Ranch with a special performance by musician Jackson Browne with Greg Leisz.

The Alliance is looking for individual and corporate sponsors for Fire Ball 2017. Tax-deductible donations allow event revenues to go directly to buying life-saving equipment.

The first responders to local emergencies are local firefighters. Emergencies to which they respond include: wildfires, structure fires, medical emergencies, hazardous-materials spills, roadway accidents, and terrorism.

In addition to the Browne and Leisz performances, the Fire Ball 2017 event will feature a live water-rescue demonstration, firefighter barbecue teams, and cocktails.

The Santa Barbara Firefighters Alliance is a local nonprofit 501(c)3 volunteer organization that provides needed, unbudgeted, state-of-the-art equipment to enhance the safety and effectiveness of Santa Barbara city and county firefighters.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
