Spring Bay Volunteer Fire Department Vendor Fundraiser Event
Spring Bay Volunteer Fire Department Vendor Fundraiser Event

Start Date: Jan. 26, 2013
Time: 12:00 PM

The Community served by the Spring Bay Fire Protection District is rallying to help the department purchase a new set of extraction tools. A multi-vendor fundraising event will be held with portions of every sale benefiting the department. Many participating vendors have online shops where those who cannot attend may still make a purchase to benefit the department. The department’s current set of extrication tools are about 20 years old. They suffer from the expected wear and tear of twenty years of use. Additionally, the technology and materials used to build cars has changed dramatically in the past two decades, causing the current tools to be less effective. Spring Bay Fire Protection District serves a population of approximately 4,500 in 42 sq. miles, responding to about 350 calls per year. Long stretches of unmarked rural roads weave through hilly, curvy terrain along the Illinois River. When roads are slick, in is not surprising to see many cars off the road. This emphasizes the necessity of these tools being updated! Businesses participating include Pampered Chef, Castaways Consignment, Scentsy, Hometown Veterinary Clinic, All About Girls, Thirty-One, Stella and Dot, Grace Adele, Tastefully Simple, Jamberry Nails, Pink Zebra and others. Online shops have been set up with many of these vendors.
