Firefighters planning annual Christmas tree pick-up

  • Dec. 28, 2016 10:26 p.m.

Members of the Red Deer Firefighters will once again provide the voluntary Christmas tree pick-up service to Red Deer homes. Residents can place Christmas trees on their front lawn for pick up beginning Jan. 8th.

“Christmas tree pick-up is not a City-funded service and we rely on the generous donations to keep this annual campaign alive. With the increase in artificial trees our donations have rapidly declined over the last 10 years. We thank everyone who continues to participate.” said Brad Readman with IAFF Red Deer Local 1190.

Donations to the Red Deer Firefighters Children’s Charity can be made directly to the firefighter picking up your tree, or mailed in the pre-addressed envelope left in your mailbox. Receipts are issued for upon request. Donations to the Red Deer Firefighters Children’s Charity are used to support local children’s charities.

“On behalf of the Red Deer Firefighters and Local 1190, we thank all residents for their continued support,” said Readman.
