In addition to endangering lives, homes, property and pets in the path of wildfire, these infernos also produced air quality issues for these regions and beyond. According to an article in the New York Times, summer wildfires generated plumes of smoke that spread across large regions of the country.
In early September, the air quality in the Pacific Northwest was temporarily the worst of any air quality being observed in the world. This was according to Berkeley Earth, an organization that monitors the climate. Both Washington and California declared states of emergency as skies browned and air filled with smoke. Regions of Oregon saw snowing ash.
Wildland firefighters risk their lives throughout the season to battle these and other wildfires. In October, Papa John’s teams up with Cowboy Lifestyle Network to thank wildland firefighters by donating to the Wildland Firefighter Foundation (WFF). Use the code WFF40 when ordering online, and you’ll receive 40 percent off any regularly priced menu item. Papa John’s will donate 10 percent of your discounted purchase price to WFF. Not only do you get a great deal on a great pizza, you can also help a worthy cause! This offer is valid at limited cities in Arizona, Oregon, Wyoming, Colorado, Illinois, Missouri & Kansas through 10/31/17.
Based in Boise, Idaho, WFF provides aid to firefighters injured while battling grass or forest fires throughout the West. Support could include assistance with travel costs to bring family members to the bedside of an injured firefighter, or help with replacing lost wages during a firefighter’s medical leave. Family members including children also receive support through an annual event which brings together families of fallen or injured firefighters.
Don’t think just buying a pizza or a tweet is gonna cut it.
