Almond Fire Department and First Responders
Honoring First Responders on July 27th PDF Print E-mail

“A proud tradition will continue to grow,” reports Ron Naab of Gear Up Foundation. Naab went on to explain that Gear Up Foundation will sponsor the American Tribute Ride on Saturday, July 27th, starting in Appleton and ending at Tator Toot in Almond.

The members of the steering committee for the “American Tribute Ride” are dedicated to remembering those that served and continue to serve our country. The ride will act to honor Firefighters, Law Enforcement, Emergency Medical Responders & Military.

Gear Up Foundation’s Mission Statement says: “To honor those who perished, served, are still serving and all that were affected by the events of September 11th 2001 by promoting international brotherhood and goodwill, providing equipment, education, and hope to first responders and children in need, worldwide. Bringing our world closer together as “Ambassadors of Goodwill” exemplified by the passion, bravery and brotherhood of first responders representing all that is good about those who answer the call.” This ride honors that mission while highlighting our commitment to never forget the “TWO DATES THAT LIVE IN INFAMY”, both the attacks on 9/11 and the attacks on Pearl Harbor. We are proud to have started the tradition of joining and remembering those two dates along with those who served then and still serve now. Our military along with our first responders [Law Enforcement, EMS, Fire/Rescue] have a common purpose when answering the call. That purpose is to assist those in harm’s way honoring America and our fellow Americans.

“The American Tribute Ride” will disperse appropriate proceeds generated by this fund raising event to, but not limited to the following entities:

Concerns Of Police Survivors Camp [C.O.P.S. camp in East Troy]

Gear Up Foundation

Wisconsin’s Fischer House (Wounded Warriors)

Wisconsin State Firefighters Memorial

The ride as always is open to all participants that would like to help us support the first responders and military that protect us every day at home and abroad. Whether you ride 1,2,3,4 or more wheels, we welcome you to join us. More information will be available on the www.gearupfoundation.org or on Facebook. Follow our page, American Tribute Ride for more information.

Even though we stretch grants and tax dollars as far as we can, we still need to rely on the community’s support financially to be able to improve our equipment and serve our district better each year.  

You are invited to our annual pork chop and chicken dinner and raffle scheduled for September 11, 2011 from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm at the Legion Hall on Division St in Almond. 

Dinner prices which include baked potato, corn on the cob, cole slaw, baked beans and a desert are:

Pork Chop Dinner
$8.00
 1/2 Chicken Dinner
 $8.00
 1/4 Chicken Dinner
 $4.00

 

Raffle tickets are available from our firefighters, EMS, and local businesses and the day of the dinner as well.


With the help of a $6000.00 donation from Wilbur-Ellis Company and the community's generous support, we hope to complete our four year goal of having our full set of new Jaws of Life in two years! The cost of this project will actually be between $18,000 and $20,000.  We have committed to the purchase of the basic setup (pump, cutters and spreaders) with the money we currently have and hope to raise enough this year to complete the set of tools we need to provide a full range of rescue capability.

Nine Teams Compete in Water Wars at the 2009 Tater Toot PDF Print E-mail

Saturday July 25th brought a great parade, followed by a brief shower and then water wars with nine teams representing six area fire departments.

Teams from Almond (2), Plover (2), Hancock (2), Iola, Bancroft, and Sherry competed in the 2009 Almond Tater Toot Wars.  You can find pictures of the event in our Photo Gallery.

In the end, Almond-Team 1 took first place, Plover-Team 1 took second, and Hancock-Team 1 took third.  A good time was had by all competing and also the spectators at the event.  The brief showers that would roll through wasn't the only thing getting spectators wet, however.

Thanks to all the teams who traveled to compete.  Also, a big thank you to all those who volunteered and helped during the event.  As with any event, a lot of planning and folks to run the event are needed, and those that helped this year deserve a big thanks!

Hope to see you all next year!
