Annual Firefighters’ Dance

Dear Patron,

On behalf of the officers and firefighters of the Richland Center Fire Department, I cordially extend to you an invitation to our Annual Firefighters’ Dance to be held at the Ramada Inn/White House located in Richland Center on Saturday, October 6, 2012.

“Cheyenne” will provide music for your enjoyment from 8 PM until midnight. As in the past, prizes will be awarded through a drawing using the enclosed ticket stubs in an effort to highlight fire prevention and safety. The theme for the 2012 Fire Prevention Week (October 7th-13th) is…  “Have 2 Ways Out!” One of the best ways to protect your family is to have properly installed and regularly checked smoke detectors on all levels of your home along with the plan for evacuating your home in the event of a fire.

The Richland Center Fire Department is comprised of 42 firefighters provided 24 hour-a-day fire suppression, fire prevention, and rescue services to 310 square miles of Richland County. Established in 1870, this department has continued to do this for the past 142 years.
We have always been able to rely on your financial support to help provide the department with needed equipment. Funds received last year were used to purchase equipment for the department’s technical rope rescue team, a “smart” rescue mannequin, and smoke generator. Funds were also used to equip Unit 715 with a generator and scene lighting system for use at incidents to which the unit responds. We will continue to upgrade extrication equipment used at accident/rescue scenes as well as upgrading and adding to our technical rope rescue equipment. As always, the RCFD members appreciate your continued financial support.

We look forward to seeing you on Saturday, October 6 which is our opportunity to extend our thanks for your financial assistance. The return of the enclosed ticket stubs and tax-deductible contribution will show your support and enter you in our drawing for door prizes on Saturday evening. You need not be present to win. Please join us for an enjoyable evening of music and dance.

Thank you,
Robert Bindl, Chief
Richland Center Fire Department
