What's New at IAFF 772
Bangor Firefighters raise $9,084 for MDA in Black Friday Fill the Boot

BANGOR, Maine – More than nine members of the Bangor Fire Department Local 772 raised $9,084 during the annual Fill the Boot drive on Black Friday to benefit children and adults affected by muscle disease throughout the Bangor area.

To date the Bangor Fire Department has raised  $29,322 for the MDA of Maine. Longhorn Steakhouse in Bangor held a Dining for Dollars event 5-8 p.m. to help raise further funds for the Bangor Fire Department Fill the Boot program.

For six decades, fire fighters have fueled MDA’s mission to find treatments and cures for life-threatening muscle diseases, and this year’s Bangor Fill the Boot results are a perfect example of the true dedication Bangor Fire Department Local 772 has toward supporting the families we serve,” said Fundraising Coordinator Lisa Nouchanthavong. “We’re grateful for the support of these inspiring, selfless individuals who provide life-saving help that will fund research, advocate for children and adults affected by muscle disease, and rally our community to fight back.”

Funds raised through 2014 Bangor Fill the Boot events will help support MDA’s programs of worldwide research, specialized health care services, and day-to-day support – which includes sending children affected by muscular dystrophy and related muscle diseases to a weeklong, barrier-free MDA summer camp at Camp Agassiz in Poland.
As the Muscular Dystrophy Association’s largest national sponsor, the IAFF fuels MDA’s mission to find treatments and cures for life-threatening muscle diseases.

The IAFF is a major contributing sponsor of the MDA Show of Strength Telethon, and IAFF contributions from charity baseball games and other local events help support MDA’s efforts to raise awareness and provide professional and public education about neuromuscular diseases.
IAFF support for MDA began in 1954 when the organization committed by proclamation to support MDA until a cure is found, and the organization’s unwavering commitment to MDA has remained strong to this day. The IAFF raised $100,000 for MDA in 1955, and $1 million in 1970, and fire fighters continue to raise the bar in their fundraising efforts. In 2013, more than 100,000 fire fighters participated in Fill the Boot events across the country and raised $26.2 million. To date the IAFF has raised $530 million for MDA.

D-Crew Extrication

Driver rescued with jaws of life, charged with OUI after flipping car near Bangor Mall

By Mario Moretto, BDN Staff

BANGOR, Maine — A Bangor man was charged with operating under the influence after he was rescued from his overturned car early Thanksgiving morning.

Paul Aucoin, 32, was driving on Bangor Mall Boulevard after leaving a nearby restaurant around 12:45 a.m. Thursday, as heavy, wet snow fell during the year’s second major storm event, according the Bangor Police Department officials.

Complete information about the accident was unavailable Thursday afternoon, but Sgt. Larry Webber said Aucoin took a bad turn and struck a coping stone, which caused his 2013 Subaru to turn onto its side.

The vehicle was so badly damaged that rescuers from Bangor Fire Department needed to use the jaws of life to pry the car open and extricate Aucoin. The driver was sent to a local hospital with injuries that were not considered life-threatening, Webber said.

Webber said police suspected drugs, alcohol or both contributed to the accident.

The incident was the only serious motor vehicle accident to occur in Bangor during the overnight storm, Webber said.

Bangor firefighters to participate in Black Friday Fill the Boot for MDA

BANGOR, Maine – Members of the Bangor Fire Department Local 772, along with families served by the Muscular Dystrophy Association, will host the annual firefighters’ Black Friday Fill the Boot fundraising campaign to benefit children and adults affected by muscle disease throughout the Bangor area.

The Bangor Fire Department will hold its annual Black Friday Fill the Boot event 8 a.m.-noon Friday, Nov. 28, at Hogan Road and Bangor Mall Boulevard.

The firefighters have fueled MDA’s mission to find treatments and cures for life-threatening muscle diseases for six decades.

Funds raised through the 2014 Bangor Fill the Boot will help support MDA’s efforts to advocate for individuals and families affected by muscle disease; rally communities to fight back; and assist families with lifesaving help and day-to-day support – which includes sending children affected by muscular dystrophy and related diseases to a weeklong, barrier-free MDA summer camp at Camp Waban in Sanford.

The Fill the Boot campaign also helps support MDA’s worldwide research program and national network of 200 specialized medical clinics, including the MDA Clinic at Eastern Maine Medical Center Bangor.

This is a letter written by the wife of a Firefighter, asking the simple question, 'What is a Firefighter worth?' This letter is a must read, please take the time to read this letter and share it with everyone you know.
What is a firefighter worth? There has been so much talk recently about things like containing costs, lowering taxes, and those who work in public safety being overpaid - particularly firefighters - that it could make your head spin. We've all done the "simple math," crunched the numbers, and it all seems to boil down to a simple question. What are firefighters worth. Read More...
