Our brother, Battalion Chief Matt Burchett reached the end of his watch on the afternoon of August 13, 2018 battling the Ranch Fire on the Mendocino Complex in California. He was a devoted husband, father, brother, and is also leaving behind an extended family of firefighters nationwide. This fund is designed to help support his immediate family in this time of need.

Battalion Chief Matt Burchett was recently employed with Draper City Fire and previously with Unified Fire Authority for twenty years. Matt worked hard to help support his family at home and his family with the fire service. He will be dearly missed.
