CO FiresNews of the unprecedented Colorado wildfires sweeping the state has prompted many companies from across America to search for ways to help those fighting the blazes, those displaced, and people facing catastrophic loss. Lowes, Target, HP and even the Denver Broncos are among the many organizations donating relief funds to The American Red Cross, and lending support in ways that make sense.

For those people being evacuated,  more than 32,000 and increasing, rescuing important documents and treasured, irreplaceable memories in the form of photo prints, slides and analog home movies is often a top priority.

FotoBridge, the national photo scanning service, announced today it is offering safe, free, off-site storage of photo and movie collections at its' facility in New Jersey for up to 90 days. In order to take advantage of this offer, evacuees will be required to securely package and ship their collections via UPS or FedEx to FotoBridge. FotoBridge will secure and store their original media at its' digital archiving facility and return ship to an address designated by the evacuee when determined at no cost, FotoBridge will pay for return shipping via UPS Ground.

"We have been fortunate to have hundreds of customers from Colorado since starting our photo scanning service in 2007", said Julie Ann Morris, President of FotoBridge. "But we know the vast majority of people in Colorado and across the country have yet to digitally preserve and sufficiently backup their  highly valued analog collections. Safely handling and storing one-of-a-kind, personal photo and movie collections is what we do everyday - it's how we can help", added Ms. Morris.
