Whenever you see a firefighter standing outside a store with a boot, don’t pass by without dropping money into the shoe, said the chief of the Thomson Fire Department.
“If you see them outside of Walmart with a boot or if you see them asking you to purchase a ticket for a steak dinner, or cooking and selling burgers at events, please support them because the money benefits our Fire Safety Education Fund,” said Chief Rick Sewell.
The Fire Safety Education Fund helps the fire department with the purchase of materials to teach classes, with materials to assist with firefighter training and with implements that foster interaction with children.
“It allows us to be able to better present our messages and supports our work at our training area,” Sewell said.
