Ligonier Valley Fire Companies Fund Raiser

Fire protection is one of the responsibilities of municipal government. Here in Ligonier Township, we benefit by having this critical service provided by a network of all volunteer fire companies.  The alternative - turning to a paid system - would be far too costly to imagine.  So, it's important that we maintain the volunteer system that we have.  The annual fund drive of Ligonier Valley Fire Companies is currently underway.  This direct mail campaign is conducted entirely by our local volunteer firefighters who are themselves members of our local, township and borough, fire companies.  The proceeds of this campaign support all four fire companies (Darlington, Ligonier, Waterford and Wilpen) and 95 cents of every dollar donated goes to them. These volunteer fire companies offer a tremendous value for township residents and we encourage all Ligonier Township residents and businesses to show your support and contribute to this campaign.
