Reminder: Fire Company 2 Needs Your Help
For 97 years, New Milford Volunteer Firefighters have been there for you when you have needed them--now they need you.
What would you do if your house was on fire, but when you phoned for the fire department's help, your call went unanswered? Company 2 has put out a call for help to residents in its annual fund drive appeal, but only 7 percent of their calls have been returned. Out of 6680 letters that were sent to residents, only 467 have been returned.
Although a portion of your tax dollars goes to fund New Milford's all-volunteer fire department, the money collected from their annual appeal is put toward the operation of the fire company--drills, additional equipment, training programs, feeding the company when their services are required for extended periods of time during emergencies such as Hurricane Irene or the October snowstorm, events such as New Milford Night Out, the annual children's Christmas party and donations to "Toys for Tots."
To make it even easier to donate, Company 2 has arranged for residents to make donations through Paypal. Click here if you would like to donate to Company 2 through Paypal.
So, as you receive reminders in the mail about donating to the annual Company 2 fund drive remember this: for 97 years, these volunteers have needed no reminders to rush to your house when you are in need of their service.
