This is the fundraising office for the Jackson Professional Firefighters Local 1850. Callers are contacting residents by phone and asking them to purchase tickets for a benefit concert in an effort to raise money for local programs. Rest assured that your support is made directly payable to your local fire fighters association and will only be used in your area.
We do not use a professional fundraiser and instead chose to conduct our fundraiser ourselves. Our benefit concerts will offer quality entertainment, available at a reasonable price and provide our supporters a fun night out for the whole family. We appreciate those people who stand behind us and a without the help of the community our life saving programs would not exist.
Nationally, there are millions of fires, thousands of deaths and injuries, and billions of dollar loss - which makes the U.S. fire problem one of great national importance. Between 1999 and 2008, there was an average of 1,634,150 fires resulting in an estimated $11,634,800,000 in direct dollar loss each year. An average of 3,625 Americans lost their lives and another 18,765 were injured annually as the result of fire. These averages do not reflect the events of September 11, 2001.
With the help of local citizens and businesses maybe we can change these statistics.
