Avon supporting Bemidji firefighters

An Avon fundraiser is being held to support Bemidji firefighters.

Brochures at the Bemidji Fire Department and many business locations around town will be in place through Feb. 28. To request a brochure or place orders, call Jess Campbell at 218-308-0891 or Betty Osberg at 766-2012.

Proceeds from the sales will help purchase communications devices for firefighters.

The fire department does not have enough funds to purchase communications devices for each individual firefighter to carry, and Campbell and Osberg would like to change that.

"These men who risk their lives for us need to have the necessary equipment," they stated in a news release.
