City fire dept. raffle fundraiser


The City of Willcox Volunteer Fire Department is holding a raffle to raise funds to replace its out-of-date turnouts and other safety equipment.

The fireproof “turnouts” (heavy jackets, boots, trousers, helmets) are fire resistant and protect firefighters up to about 450 Fahrenheit.

As the items age they lose their fire resistance and thermal protection making them less effective.

Each item has a different ‘effective life,’ but 10-years is about the limit. Almost all of the equipment in use is close to or beyond this life span.

The cost of a basic set of turnouts is $2,000.

The first prize in the raffle is a full day’s race car driving instruction (Raptor Motorsports) in a Porsche 944 at the Inde Motorsport Ranch.

While at the Ranch, the driver and a spectator guest will be treated to a lunch and get promotional gifts, such as hats and shirts.

The prize also includes two nights at the Holiday Inn Express of Willcox, as well as a $20 gift certificate for a meal at Big Tex BBQ.

Second prize is a 46-inch LCD TV.

Tickets are $25 per ticket or five for $100.

Ticket sales are limited to 2,000 maximum, with the drawing to  be held on Wednesday, Sept. 11.

Complete raffle rules may be seen and online purchases may be made at http://cityofwillcox.org/raffle
