First Quarter 2016 mailers will be arriving soon. Please continue to support your 100% Volunteer Fire Department. As you may know, the municipalities that we serve have increased their annual allotments to assist in covering Operating Expenses and are creating cash reserves to assist in future Capital Projects like the replacement of apparatus and building repairs/upgrades. This commitment is greatly appreciated, however it will not become a complete process for approximately 15 years. In the interim, the Townships have asked us to continue to raise funds through our annual fund drive. Your continued contributions are essential to filling this void for the next 15 years,  As in the past, our recommended contribution for residential customers is $100 per household and can be contributed at one time, or in quarterly installments of $25. This is about 27 cents a day to help ensure that the Volunteer Firefighters have the proper equipment and apparatus should the need arise. A very small price to pay for the protection that is provided, and it is a Tax Deductible Contribution. Thank you in advance for your continued support.
