How much should I donate?

What value do you place on knowing that your Fire Department has the equipment and training they need to protect you, your loved ones, and your property whenever you call 9-1-1? Isn't this sense of security worth at least as much as one month's cable service? We hope you will agree that it is and will choose to respond by sending in a tax-deductable donation today.
