IAAI Request for Assistance to Texas

The International Association of Arson Investigators wants to do what we can to help our brothers and sisters in TX. The people of Texas are in a situation that is going to affect their lives for a long time. We hope that the fire investigation community can do great things to help them navigate through this.

After consulting with the Texas chapter leadership, who communicated directly with the Emergency Management Coordinator in the area, the best way for the IAAI to help those in need is through an existing and active organization that is doing great things throughout the year in Texas.

With that information, we have leveraged our email lists that include our membership and all of the users of CFITrainer.Net®.

With your help and the other 65,000 people that we are reaching out to, the fire investigation community can make a significant contribution, to be used wisely toward serving these people in need. The IAAI’s Executive Team and Board of Directors will all be donating, and we hope you can too.

The San Antonio Food Bank is in emergency response mode to support the local and statewide needs resulting from the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey.
