ACBC (Aluminum Cans for Burned Children) Program

Giving back to the Granite Bay Community and Visitors

In 1988 the South Placer Fire District and Alcoa Aluminum partnered-up in the collection of recyclable aluminum cans. That same year South Placer Fire was given the Recycling Achievement Award; the award was presented by the California Grocers Association and the California Department of Conservation. South Placer Fire has provided the ACBC (Aluminum Cans for Burned Children) program for more than 20 years. This program has enabled South Placer Fire to donate monies to the Firefighters Burn Institute, Alisa Ann Ruch Burn Foundation, local fire victims and the purchase of 200 smoke detectors & 400 batteries.

Recently the South Placer Firefighters Local 3809 provided funding generated by the ACBC Program to the South Placer Fire Prevention Division for public education. South Placer Fire Stations are used as drop-off sites for the collection of recyclable cans. The ACBC Program is certified by the California Department of Conservation community service program.

$1,272 was used to purchase fire prevention materials such as mini footballs, sports water bottles, Frisbees, waterproof key tags and Halloween trick or treat bags that were given to children during public education events in Granite Bay and Loomis. Items were printed with safety slogans on them such as "Sparky Says, Don’t Be Tricked, Fires are no treat; Don’t Pass on Water Safety; and Don’t Be Left In The Dark, Have An Escape Plan. At public education events children and parents are quizzed about home safety concerns and given an item for correct answers; the children and parents appeared to be very please and receptive about the educational format.

As a reminder South Placer Fire provides drop-off points utilizing its fire stations located at: 4650 East Roseville Parkway; 5300 Olive Ranch Road; 6900 Eureka Road; 7070 Auburn Folsom Road and 3505 Auburn Folsom Road. South Placer Fire wants to thank the community and looks forward to continuing support of the ACBC Program.
