Current Needs and Donations

Your donations support the essential work of our dedicated JHVFD.

Jasper Highlands is serviced by a volunteer fire department.  Each home and property owner pays an annual fee for operating costs for JHVFD, which includes the trucks, uniforms, training and other necessities.  

Donations and fundraising monies go toward purchasing additional needed items for the Fire Department, and supporting other activities conducted by the Auxiliary.

There are several ways to donate, and all forms are much appreciated!

The fire department maintains a list of currently needed items.  These are the items the Auxiliary focuses on when conducting fundraising activities.  Reach out to a member of the Fire Department or Auxiliary if you are interested in purchasing one of these items.

In 2019 we raised $9,582!  This includes a generous donation of $5,000 from Tower Bank, $503 from Sequatchie Valley Electric, $1,000 from Top of the Rock Restaurant, and the remaining from property owners.  Thank you all for supporting your JHVFD!

Where have the donations gone?  In 2019 the fire department was able to purchase several new pieces of equipment to include: Carbon Monoxide Detector, chainsaws, backpack blowers, spotlights, grass-fire water backpacks, Halligan tools, a new drip torch, AEDs, EMS kits, CPR training manuals, and a thermal imaging camera.  We also provided meals and drinks for fire department all-day training sessions, hosted a BBQ for local firefighter, and much more.
