The Lake County Firefighters Charity was established by members of IAFF Local 3990 to help give a helping hand in our community when it is needed. Many of the firefighters, paramedics and EMTs of IAFF Local 3990 volunteer their time and efforts to help run this organization. Our mission is to keep the funds raised here back into helping our community of Lake County. We are always looking for sponsors and supporters. All donations are tax deductible. The board is comprised of officers that donate their time to help run the organization. This means that NO MONEY is paid in officer salaries. 100% of the funds donated go to help the organzation and community.

Kyle Rushton is a Lake County Firefighter. His son's name is Logan. He has a condition known as polymicrogyria that has affected his left temporal and partial frontal lobes as well as the right temporal lobe. This condition causes an excess of gyria (folds in the brain) that leads to seizures and delayed development. Currently the cause of the condition is unknown, and the only treatments for it are medicine to control the seizures or brain surgery to remove the affected areas. He was diagnosed in April and is currently being treated with medication, with promising results.
