2. The Randy Carpenter Memorial Foundation “Helping Firefighters Come Home”

“Carp” began his fire service life in Baker, Oregon in 1980, and his heart and soul never left Eastern Oregon. He joined Coos Bay Fire in 1989.  His first priority was family, especially his daughters

Sarah and Stephanie. Randy’s professional passion was training, education, and a legacy of “being the best firefighter you can be.” He loved his fire brethren, representing IAFF #2935, encouraging volunteer firefighters, and as a true carpenter … building anything. In 2003, the Randy Carpenter Memorial Foundation was created by his family to continue Randy’s work in firefighter training. As of 2006, the RCMF has distributed over $50,000 in grants to help train firefighters in Oregon and Idaho. We are privileged to continue his mission in service and safety –  Randy will never be forgotten!
