auxiliary news and events

May 19 Newsletter


Just a reminder, the Forest Lakes Fire District Auxiliary will be selling our merchandise at the Memorial Day Pancake Breakfast at the Community Center. Stop by our table and check out our new t-shirt design! Also. on Sunday, May 26, we will be hosting our first Ice Cream Social of the season at the fire station from 2-4 p.m..  We look forward to seeing everyone there! If you are able to make a pie donation or would like to come and assist with this event, please call Jan Cummiskey at (602) 510-8264 two to three days before the Ice Cream Social and let us know. 

The Forest Lakes Fire District has requested that the Auxiliary assist with the purchase of a thermal imaging camera. This piece of equipment would serve several purposes and would be a valuable addition to the District’s inventory of potentially life savings tools.  In the case of the TIC, an example of its use would be searching for heat signatures of automobile occupants who may have been ejected from rollover car accidents, especially at night.  Another example is use for search and rescue, both day and night.  Finally, because it identifies heat sources, it could be used to spot small but accelerating fires in buildings or in the forest. We are beginning our fundraising for this piece of equipment Memorial Day weekend. We will have a donation “Boot” at our table both Saturday and Sunday and all monies collected with go directly towards the purchase of this piece of equipment.

In addition, the Auxiliary is sponsoring a water drive (see flyer at right) and blanket drive.   Please donate any gently used blankets by dropping them off at the fire station.
