We practically burst out in excitement at the fantastic news, Ukrainian firefighters are coming to the USA! 🇺🇸 🇺🇦

For over 2️⃣ months, the Help Ukrainian Firefighters in Need group and Polsky Foundation team worked to prepare the trip so that the defenders could come to America, attend the @fdicindy conference, receive training, and share their experiences with American firefighters. It took a lot of back-and-forth with the Minister of Internal Affairs of Ukraine and other high-ranking Ukrainian Firefighters in Kharkiv and Kyiv to make it happen. Finally, dreams came true!

🧑‍🚒Three Ukrainian firefighters, Roman, Serhii, and Oleksiy, are currently in Poland. They’ve approved their visas and are just waiting for all the documents! We look forward to seeing them in the USA!

Some interesting facts:
▫️ Roman’s family lived in Poland and is now reunited after being separated for nearly a year.
▫️ Oleksiy’s family lives in Germany. He’s so excited to be able to visit them on the return trip from the US.
▫️ Serhii’s family is currently in Ukraine. They’re glad he can take this journey to share his experience and knowledge and excitedly await his return!

It’s going to be an exciting and rewarding experience! 🙌
