Londoners Reminded to do Due Diligence Before Donating


The City of London continues to support residents and first responders in the aftermath of the explosion in Old East Village.


Although we appreciate the outpouring of support from our community, the City of London, including the London Fire Department and the London Professional Fire Fighters Association is not engaged in, partnering or doing any crowdfunding for injured firefighters and their families.


Londoners looking to support those impacted by the explosion are reminded to do some due diligence before making a donation.


Our continued priority is to protect the privacy of the injured firefighter during recovery. We will not be publically sharing any information on the status or condition of injured firefighter.
