Fire Chief encourages community to help with firefighter memorial

The Minnesota Fire Service Foundation is working to create a new memorial at the State Capitol to honor Minnesota firefighters who have fallen in the line of duty.  Below is a link to their webpage where one can see the planned memorial and make donations to support the cause. 

They’re hoping to raise the funds by December 31, 2011.   Donations can be made in honor of Jeremy Jylka of the Pine City Fire Dept., who passed away while enroute to a grass fire on April 29, 2008. 

“Please forward [this link] to anyone who may be able to help out this project,” wrote Tom Miller, Fire Chief, in a recent email to several folks in the community.
