FireEMSBlogger Needs Your Support

RE-Posted from…Help a fellow blogger

In case you didn’t know, Matt McDowell is the author of the S.A.F.E. Firefighter blog here at He’s a lieutenant with Bluffton Township Fire District (BTFD) which is just over the bridge from Hilton Head Island.

While I don’t know “Jeebs” as well as I would like, we have many mutual friends and I can tell you that he’s a class act and well respected by his peers.

A friend of mine forwarded an email to me yesterday. I’m cutting and pasting it here with Captain Dollahan’s permission.


Good morning everyone,

If you haven’t heard by now, Matt and Elizabeth McDowell are expecting a little girl by the name of Juliann McDowell. With the joy of Juliann’s arrival coming soon (Dec 28), there will be some major expenses due to the heart defect that they have already found in the multiple ultrasounds. Baby Juliann will require numerous open-heart surgeries, just after birth, in order to correct this heart defect. I have listed a link about the nature of the defect HERE.

In an effort to help McDowell (Jeebs) and Elizabeth, we are doing a 50/50 raffle to offset the major expenses coming their way. We will draw the winner of the Raffle on November 20.

I need your help to get this raffle information out… I attached the sheet with the raffle information so you can forward onto friends and family, even people you don’t know… It’s time for us to help one of our own brothers!

THANK YOU… In advance

Please don’t hesitate to call or email me with any questions!!!

Might want to look at ammending the law to including uses of lighting grills/stoves. Arkansas passed a law -n 07, and just got through having to pass another version to include gas grills
