JFRD still accepting donations to aid family members of missing firemen

They are hoping to use the funds to help the family of the firefighters and pay off debts associated with the massive search.

The Jacksonville Fire and Rescue Department is still accepting donations as they access the needs of the family of the missing firefighters who left out of Port Canaveral almost a week ago and never returned.

On Thursday, JFRD and the U.S. Coast Guard announced that they will be suspending active search operations for the two men.

JFRD fireman Brian McCluney and Justin Walker, a firefighter from Fairfax, Va., were last seen Friday putting their single-engine 24-foot Robalo boat in the Atlantic Ocean. 

Since then, thousands of searchers have been looking for the men since they've been missing. The search area has expanded into North Carolina and the New England area.

JFRD is hoping to use the funds to help the family of the firefighters and pay off debts associated with the massive search.

You can make a donation by visiting www.jfrd.com.
