It’s important to remember the meaning of community extends to others in need, even across seas. When we have the ability to help, the ETFD answers the call. In previous years, our department has purchased new gear and equipment to serve Elizabeth TWP residents and businesses. This past weekend, our department sent the old, non compliant, gear/equipment that we had replaced but sitting in storage and donated it to The FD Relief Mission of Western PA, a mission dedicated to th...e Dominican Republic. It is the second time we have been able to help out with gear we’ve replaced and sent our salvage items to help others in need. In addition, numerous other fire departments across the area all came together to help out the same as we did. Know that when you support your local fire department, that when the time comes and we have the capacity, we help others in need, too. We are able to make your donations go farther than ever before while still keeping to the primary mission of your Volunteer Fire Department. Happy Hanukkah and Merry Christmas!
