Go Fund Me Campaign
As the City continues to develop the hiking and biking trails in our abundant mountainous terrain, we are tasked in providing the same level of response to those areas for both fire and life safety emergency responses. We were successful in applying for a grant for a Utility Terrain Vehicle (UTV) a few years ago. Looking to the future however, we will need to properly outfit and equip the UTV with the ability to rescue and transport anyone injured in those areas, as well as attack any potential fires that may occur in those area. Your donation to this fund drive will allow us to acquire a combination skid mounted rescue/firefighting unit which will be installed on our UTV.
Any amount that you could comfortably share with us, will be greatly appreciated, and in doing so, you will know that you will be allowing us to continue helping those in their time of need. On behalf of the officers and members of the Port Jervis Fire Department, we would like to thank you for the consideration given this request.
The Port Jervis Fire Department is dedicated to safeguarding the lives, property, and environment of our community through exceptional services in education, preparedness, prevention and prompt response to emergency incidents.
