Now Itís Your Turn.

dscf1849-1000x750

Last fall I wrote about doing the right thing by getting involved in an organization of firefighters known as Hancock Hope, formed for the sole purpose of helping other firefighters and fire departments in need.

I talked about the struggles of a very rural volunteer fire department in Oneida, Kentucky and of the goodwill of the Newstead NY Volunteer Fire Company who donated a used fire engine to them. It was a team effort with a lot of help of some more good folks from the First Baptist Church in Vandalia, Ohio.

††

That donated 1986 fire engine has served them well for the past six months. One of the church members, Michael Whitby Ė a young, energetic EMT himself; took it upon himself to do the right thing again and nominated Oneida FD in a contest to win a brand new fire engine from†E-One Fire Apparatus. Michael made a compelling argument as to why this small, impoverished fire company –†so much that E-One has chosen Oneida as one of seven finalists.

Hereís where you come in. To move Oneida from the ďFinal SevenĒ to the winners circle requires that you Ė and everyone you know Ė act now and go to E-Oneís web site to vote for Oneidaís story as the best story.

To vote for Oneidaís story, click: http://www.e-one.com/news/eone-stories/vote-for-the-best-story.htm?id=651. (NOTE: I had to put my browser in full screen mode to see the vote button at the bottom of the page.)

IMPORTANT: To confirm your vote, you must reply to an e-mail that E-One will send you after youíve cast your ballot.

Voting ends at 1:00 p.m. on April 24th and the winner will be announced at 3:00 p.m. on the FDIC show floor in E-ONEís booth – #9104 Lucas Oil Stadium.

Iíll be there. The folks from Oneida will be there. I hope you will be there for them then, and now by casting your vote.

It doesnít cost you anything but a few moments of your time. Your vote could mean a world of difference to a small fire department with a big heart. Now itís your turn to ďDo the Right Thing
