Residential Fund Raising Effort In Full Swing

Posted on April 5, 2018

The fire department needs your help!  Every year we ask that you provide us with the tools we need to protect you and your family during your worse day.  Those tools can be measured in dollars or by volunteering to help your neighbor or both.  This year is no different. 



We again ask that you provide financial support to our efforts to meet the more than $90,000 it takes to prepare to respond to the next emergency.  We know each of us can only give but so much however if we all just contribute what we can we will reach our goal.



If you would like to contribute the effort you can either make your donation by check, money or online donation.  We look forward to seeing your support for committement to you.
