At the celebration Frank and Laura Sayre, along with many foundation donors, in the presence of many Hawaii County firefighters, announced the award of more than $50,000 in fire department equipment to the Hawaii County Fire Department for its heroic work each and every day. The Foundation is in memory of and inspired by their son Danny Sayre who died in a tragic accident near Kapaloa Falls. His body was recovered by three members of the County of Hawaii Fire Department who put their own lives at risk to recover his body. Since then, the Sayres have dedicated much of their lives to raising funds to help support the County Fire Department’s rescue and accident prevention efforts. (COURTESY PHOTO)
