From the Hovland Area Volunteer Fire Department - May 11, 2021

The Hovland Area Volunteer Fire Department  is proud to announce the addition of a new fire truck to our fleet of emergency response vehicles!

We are grateful to the North Shore Health Care Foundation for their significant grant award, as well as to Boreal Community Media and KBJR News for their support and assistance in spreading the news of our fundraising efforts.

Our deepest thanks go out to all the community members of Hovland, Cook County, and beyond for their immediate and generous response to our call for assistance. Because of their contributions, we exceeded our monetary goal, allowing us to not only purchase the fire engine, but to outfit it with the proper safety equipment.

To celebrate our good fortune, we invite you to stop by the Hovland Fire Hall for an informal outdoor gathering on Saturday and Sunday, May 22nd and 23rd. We will have our new truck on display and will be grilling out for all our supporters. Come join us between 11:00am and 2:00pm. We are located at 5059 East Highway 61 in Hovland.
