Fire Service to create Tragedy Fund

CHENANGO – The Chenango County Fire Chief’s Association and the Chenango County Red Knights are working together to create a financial assistance fund to aid firefighters when tragedy strikes them or their loved ones.

Association President Douglas Shattuck said the organizations decided to create a Chenango County Firefighter’s Fund following the recent death of a service member.

“Instead of waiting for a tragedy to happen, we thought it might be a good idea to have something already in place,” said Shattuck. “Not that this will take the place of any other fundraising, but it offers a place for a struggling family to start.”
