In the 2006 wildfires a hero, Kathy Ryan, lost her life. As a tribute to their mother, Kathy’s children set up a fund at the Amarillo Area Foundation. The goal of the fund is to provide grants to rural fire and rescue entities to increase fire education, allow for important equipment to be purchased or to expand work that is already taking place. The Fund, established by the family of Kathy Ryan and the law firm of Lovell, Lovell, Isern, & Farabough and managed by the Amarillo Area Foundation, has given more than $50,000 in grants to deserving first responder organizations in the Texas Panhandle–excluding Potter and Randall counties.

Recently, at the Amarillo Area Foundation offices, Kathy’s children were able to give a $10,000 grant to the
Dalhart Volunteer Fire Department to help build a training facility for fire and rescue operations in Dallam, Hartley, and Sherman Counties.
