Life Care Packets

In its continuing dedication to supporting wildland firefighters and their families, the Wildland Firefighter Guardian Institute (WFGI) has developed a Life Care Packet designed to provide wildland firefighters the opportunity to express their wishes regarding important matters should they become incapacitated. The packet contains Health Care Directives and a Last Will and Testament. Although no one likes to think about the possibility of needing to utilize these documents, given the dangerous work performed by wildland firefighters, it is very important to let your loved ones and medical personnel know what measures to take if you are harmed.

The packets are available here, along with an accompanying video featuring messages from WFGI family members of the Granite Mountain Hotshots. The packets are downloadable and printable—simply click on the appropriate state icon to access the packet for your state. Currently, packets are available for Arizona, with more states coming soon, so be sure to check back as we update. The WFGI stands ready to assist the wildland community—regardless of crew status as government, contract, or inmate crew—we are here to help in any way we can and hope that you will take a few minutes to watch the video and complete a packet to ensure that your loved ones know your wishes.
