Inspired by the efforts of our nation's firefighters -- including the many Georgia-Pacific employees serving their communities as volunteer firefighters -- we have tapped into the inspirational history of firefighting to create the Georgia-Pacific Bucket Brigade™. Founded in 2006, Georgia-Pacific Bucket Brigade™ provides support which includes:
- Grants which are co-sponsored by the Georgia-Pacific Foundation and local GP Facilities
- Continuing education programs and materials to help spread the word about fire safety
- Memberships for all grant applicants to the National Volunteer Fire Council
NOTE: A requirement for receiving a grant or donation from the GP Bucket Brigade program is that the fire department must serve a community in which a Georgia-Pacific facility is located or where GP employees reside. Professional volunteer firefighters should contact their area Georgia-Pacific facility to participate in the GP Bucket Brigade Program. Click here for more information about GP facilities.
