The annual Chatham Turkey Trot organized by President Curt Ritter raises funds for various non-profit organizations. For the past eleven years the Chatham Township Volunteer Fire Department (CTVFD) has been fortunate to be a recipient of funds from this event.
Curt Ritter said, “We are pleased to present a check for $10,000 to the Chatham Township Volunteer Fire Department to support their purchase of a state-of-the art thermal imaging camera (TIC). TICs are used on just about every call to identify hot spots within a home’s walls, search for potential victims trapped in a building or occupants that have been ejected from a motor vehicle. Put simply, they are critical to fire operations. Chief Matthew Lemons, “thanks Curt Ritter and everyone who came out to support the Turkey Trot.”
