      CLICK HERE TO SUPPORT OUR BOOK BAGS!

      Your local 521 Billings firefighters are teaming up with Usborne books to outfit all of the Billings fire trucks with comfort bags for kids in crisis. These bags will be used to assist children whose families are struck by tragedies in our community.

      Comfort bags will include: 

      • Stuffed animal
      • Storybook (specifically for kids dealing with difficult situations)
      • Activity book
      • Firefighter non-fiction book
      • Crayons
      • Reusable cinch bag

      We are hoping to get 4 bags on each of the trucks that serve the Billings community.

      Every $20 donation builds a bag to give to a child in need. 100% of the money raised will be used for these comfort bags. Usborne Books and More will match 50% of all money raised. They will also give a portion of proceeds on specific books to the Scott Carter Foundation which helps Pediatric Cancer Patients. 

      With your help, we can make a difference in the lives of children in our community, offering them comfort in a difficult time.

      Texting while driving involves all three types of distracted driving: cognitive, manual, and visual impairment – in all three instances every part of you is unfocused on the road.

      The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that over 3,000 distracted drivers crash and die every year.

      Texting while driving makes you 23 times more likely to get in a car accident than a non-distracted driver.

      The Virginia Tech Transportation Institute found the minimal amount of time your attention is taken away from the road while texting and driving is 5 seconds.

      A crash usually happens within an average of 3 seconds of a driver being distracted.

      13% of drivers age 18-20 involved in car accidents admitted to using their mobile device at the time of the crash.
