ERGM firefighters accepting donations

Thursday, February 16, 2006

To the Editor:

We would like to inform our communities that the Eagle Rock-Golden-Mano firefighters and First Responders are accepting donations to the Fire Fighter Relief Fund.

We established this fund last year when one of our own was stricken with a terminal illness and we realized our limitations to help. We held fundraisers and reached out for donations and were able to lessen the financial burdens during a very hard time. We felt that if an illness or injury would affect another of our volunteers we should have a fund established to assist right away.

We add to the fund every month from our fire department breakfast, which is held the second Saturday of every month at the fire station on Highway 86. Our firefighters and First Responders would like to say "thank you" to everyone who has already donated to the Fire Fighters Relief Fund.

Anyone who wishes to donate to the fund please talk to any of our firefighters or First Responders.

Thank you,

Chief Ron Creek
