Ford Motor Company today pledged to assist in the wildfire relief and recovery efforts in Southern California through the donation of money, vehicles and volunteer manpower. In addition, Ford Motor Credit Company is offering customers impacted by the wildfires the opportunity to delay some vehicle payments.


Ford Motor Company immediately is donating 20 specially equipped vehicles -- 11 Ford F-250 and F-350 Super Duty trucks and nine Ford Expedition sport utility vehicles - to fire and rescue departments in some of the areas most devastated by the fires.
Additionally, Ford Motor Company Fund is contributing $100,000 to the San Diego Chapter of the American Red Cross to help with relief efforts.


"The San Diego Chapter Red Cross has a critical need for medical, food, water and other supplies, as well as counseling support for hundreds of residents forced from their homes," said Jim Vella, president of Ford Motor Company Fund."We are responding to this need immediately."


Longer term, Ford employees in Southern California will be called upon to volunteer time to assist in community recovery and relief efforts through Ford Volunteer Corps, a corporate-wide program established by Ford Motor Company Executive Chairman Bill Ford after the December 2004 tsunami in Southeast Asia.


In addition, Ford Motor Credit announced today that it would offer some payment relief to customers impacted by the wildfires through the Ford Credit Disaster Relief Program. The program allows customers to delay one or two monthly payments, resuming their regular payment schedules when their situations improve.


The offer is available to customers who are leasing or have purchased vehicles from Ford Credit, Jaguar Credit, Land Rover Capital, Mazda American Credit, PRIMUS or Volvo Car Finance. Ford Motor Credit customers who are eligible for the Disaster Relief Program will be sent letters with instructions on how to register.

Autoblog - Ford extends A-plan to California families affected by wildfires
AND to the Firefighters!


  • Ford Motor Company is making the Ford employee A-Plan discount available for Nov. 1 – 30, 2007 to those families whose vehicles were lost in the recent California wildfires.
  • To say "thank you" to California firefighters, Ford is extending the same A-Plan discount to firefighters throughout the state.
  • Last week, Ford Motor Company donated 20 Ford F-Series trucks and Expedition utility vehicles to Southern California firefighting organizations, pledged assistance by the Ford Volunteer Corps, gave $100,000 to the San Diego Red Cross through the Ford Motor Company Fund, and allowed customers impacted by the wildfires the opportunity to delay some vehicle payments through Ford Motor Credit Company.
"As a way of expressing our concern to victims and saying to the firefighters, 'Thank you from our family to your family,'
we are extending this unique opportunity to those who have been impacted by the fires, both to those who lost vehicles
to the fires and to the firefighters who gave so selflessly to contain them," stated Hal Dewsnap, Ford Lincoln Mercury
California regional manager. "We recognize that the impact of this disaster will be far-reaching, and we want to extend
our support beyond the initial steps announced last week. This will not be an advertised offer. We are simply reaching
out to those in need after a loss, and rewarding our firefighters after an exceptionally difficult period."
