For the second year in a row, the Mountville Fire Company No. 1 will be holding our "Heroes In The Sky" event with the help of our local K-Mart. They have graciously allowed us to use their roof to hold our event. Beginning on September 10, 2001 at 0800 and going through September 11, 2011 at 1200, we will be campaigning out in front of the store with our 2012 The Fire Within Calendars. K-Mart is located at 3975 Columbia Ave, just off of Prospect Rd in W. Hempfield Twp. Read the Press Release (pdf) for more information.
This is the fifth year for the event and the second year Mountville Fire Company No. 1 is participating. In the words of Chad Sartison, Chairman of Firefighters1st, “The calendar initiative is truly community-based and every dollar raised by the Mountville Fire Company No. 1, firefighters through selling the calendar will stay in Mountville. With the anniversary of September 11th, it is a timely occasion to be recognizing the immense contribution of all firefighters everywhere who day and night risk their lives, yet largely go unnoticed. ”
Heroes in the Sky is the flagship event created by The Fire Within. It's purpose is to create awareness for volunteer fire departments and volunteer firefighters nationwide. Heroes In The Sky is used by departments involved in the Calendar Campaign. The annual event creates the perfect opportunity to accomplish the following:
- Get your volunteer firefighters out in the community and interacting with the public
- Sell hundreds of calendars!
- Enjoy remarkable team building and have fun while doing it
- Unite the voice of volunteer firefighters across North America
