Due to COVID-19 the 2020 Crusade for Children was rescheduled for for the first weekend in August. It is also going to look a little different. Unfortunately in order to help reduce the spread of the virus changes to our collection efforts have had to be made. We will likely not be doing any road blocks or door-to-door collections.
We are going to need your help if we are going to hit our goals! We have several new ideas in the works but the easiest way to donate is going to be electronically.
Make sure to credit Fern Creek when you make your donations so we can be #1 again this year!
We are very excited to get this rescue pumper on the streets. After the Facebook Live yesterday, we thought we’d also show a quick walk around hype video with more follow up videos to come. Meet 7131 –

As our community begins its phased reopening we urge all businesses to evaluate their fire protection systems as well as their emergency evacuation plans. Attached you will find a guide from the National Fire Protection Association that will aid you in doing a self inspection. As a reminder all maintenance on protection systems need to be completed by a trained technician.
The past six weeks have been a very difficult struggle for so many people in our community. During this time, the amount of support and generosity we have seen, has been nothing short of astonishing. We have been provided with food nearly every day since the start. Boxes of handmade masks were given to us when our supplies ran short. People have dropped off cases of water, sent cards, and even offered to buy our groceries. There are simply too many individuals and companies to list, who have supported us in some way. We cannot begin to thank everyone enough for what you have done. During a time of so much uncertainty; it has become unmistakably clear that we could not do what we do without the kindness, love, and generosity of our community. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you.
Our thoughts and prayers are with our brothers and sisters at LMEMS and all involved in the motor vehicle accident today. Praying for the injured and wish for a speedy recovery.
