ANNUAL LANCASTER FIREFIGHTERS ASSOCIATION CHRISTMAS TREE REMOVAL PROGRAM
Let us remove your Christmas tree! Each year, the Lancaster Firefighters Association runs a Christmas Tree removal program. Simply call (978) 368-4003 during regular business hours or e-mail Sgranger@lancasterfd.net to schedule a tree pick up. Once your tree has been taken down and moved to the curb, our Firefighters and EMTs will come and remove it for you. Remember, leaving a dried out Christmas Tree up for too long is a significant fire hazard. This tree removal service is free for Lancaster town residents and donations to the Firefighters Association are always greatly appreciated. Click the image below for the flyer:
Lancaster Firefighters Association Supports the MDA
On December 13th the Lancaster Firefighters Association presented a check to the Muscular Dystrophy Association in the amount of $2,000.00. This money was collected during the Association's annual MDA Boot Drive in October. The MDA is a non-profit organization that raises money for children and adults who are impacted by muscular dystrophy, ALS or other muscle-debilitating diseases. This money helps to support these families and also helps to fund the research for a cure for these diseases. The Association would like to thank the community for their generous donations during our Boot Drive.
