ROCKLAND COUNTY, NY – Rockland Firefighters hit the streets this morning and held a countywide Helmet and Boot drive in support for fallen Spring Valley Firefighter Jared Lloyd that raised over $100,000.
This morning, from Piermont to Sloatsburg, firefighters were either out on the streets or outside a popular business with one goal – to raise money for the family of Jared Lloyd. We tried to stop at every fire department holding a drive.
The following departments participated:
Blauvelt Volunteer Fire Company Inc.
Central Nyack FD
Nanuet Fire Department
New City Fire Department
Piermont Fire Department
Sloatsburg Fire Department
Suffern FD – Suffern Hook & Ladder Co. #1
& Suffern Volunteer Hose Co. #1
Tallman Volunteer Fire Department
Tappan Fire Department
Valley Cottage Fire Department 22
West Haverstraw Fire Dept 23 Vol Hose Company 2
It was very heartwarming to see overwhelming outpouring of support from the community. Final returns have the amount raised over $100,000. 100% of the donations will go to the family of fallen Spring Valley Firefighter Jared Lloyd. Check Rockland Fires more updates.
