Jefferson Township Volunteer Fire Company

Beginning Monday night and over the next 16 hours, our volunteers have responded to over a dozen requests for our service. Requests ranging from traffic details and a fuel spill to pumping details up to several feet. While our number may be no where near the number of requests our brothers in the valleys have responded on, we did our best to prioritize and answer all requests as quick as possible. To those who saw us and tried to tip our volunteers and donate to us, our goal is to turn your contribution right back around and purchase additional equipment to help us serve you better during future severe weather. A big thank you also goes out to the Jefferson Township Police Department and Road Department for also assisting us with roadway incidents and also the Jefferson Township Supervisors for helping us late at night get the resources we needed. For those in our community facing damage, we are keeping you and your family in our thoughts. ... See MoreSee Less
