Fire Department Fundraising Drive Kicks Off

Staff Writer

The Minster-Jackson Township Fire Department's annual fundraising ticket drive is currently underway.

“In past years, members have gone door to door selling tickets,” fire chief Rich Prenger said. “Last year the Fire Department elected to do a mailing. The response was great. Thank you. As in the past, the proceeds from this ticket drive will be used to purchase equipment that will help us in our firefighting/rescue efforts. It is our continuing goal to provide the best fire protection and emergency aid possible for the residents of our fire district.”

In past years, the proceeds – from this fundraiser, the Alumni Softball Tournament food booth, the Oktoberfest food booth and other contributions, – have enabled the department to purchase items for the department.

The department purchased a new MSA Evolution 6000 Thermal lmaging Camera along with upgrades to the water/ice rescue equipment, additional extrication equipment used at vehicle and industrial accident scenes and other items have been purchased to enhance department capabilities.

“On behalf of all the members of our department, I want to thank you for your continued support,” Prenger said.

Drawings will continue throughout the year (June 2018 to May 2019). One $100 winner will be drawn each month. Tickets are $10 each. If you need additional tickets, contact a Fire Department member or email your name and address to The drawing will be held the second Tuesday of every month. The first drawing is June 2018.

“Again, we would like to extend our sincere thanks,” Prenger said.
