We Need Your Help

November 9, 2023

We need your help to close a $300,000 budget gap and keep Watch Duty going.

We accomplished a lot in 2023:

1) We expanded coverage to the entire Western US. We added 10 new states – a 750% increase in area covered.

2) The Watch Duty app was downloaded by more than 1 million people. During peak fire season, 350,000 people used Watch Duty daily.

3) Our volunteer team grew from 31 to 121 and full-time staff from 1 to 7. These volunteers are at the heart of Watch Duty and make our service work. We also monitored more fires than ever before, 12,270 in 2023 to be exact.

4) First responders rely on Watch Duty. We work with many agencies to provide more information to first responders and emergency managers.
