Every year, the Friendship Hose Company solicits donations through the mail to all households in our first due coverage area. This is a major fundraiser for us and provides a majority of our operating income for the year. Our 2017 letter was mailed during the first week of April. If you have already mailed us a donation – no matter how small, we greatly thank you for your generosity. If you haven’t yet mailed us a donation, please fill out the pink colored slip along with your donation and send it using the self addressed envelope provided with the letter. If you have not received a fund drive mailing but would like to make a donation, please let us know!
2017 will see major progress for the Friendship Hose Company. We have begun the process to replace our 1985 Ford/Pierce engine. This apparatus still has an open cab in the back and is a manual transmission. This project will easily cost upwards of a half a million dollars. In addition, in 2016 the Friendship Hose Company purchased land on S. Liberty St. which will be used for a new fire station. This is a long term project but still cannot be completed without the support of our community!
