We have been made aware that the Blount County Rescue Squad has a fund raising company going door to door soliciting donations in return for a free 8x10 family portrait.
Please be aware that the people associated with the fundraiser are not an affiliate of the West Blount Fire District and the money does not go to West Blount Fire District.
The Blount County Rescue Squad is, however, a member of the Blount County Fire and EMS Association and a resource occasionally used by our department. We are not discouraging you from donating, we just want you to know where your money is going so you are not misinformed.
