It is good to see this topic revisited , even if it is 7 years old.
The Auxiliary in our fire company helps us with fundraising , fire prevention,
public relations , as well as food and refreshments on emergency scenes or
back at the fire house , during some of our longer duration emergencies .

Although it is , in our company , the Ladies Auxiliary , several men also
participate . It allows folks who , for whatever reason , can not or do not wish to participate in fire/rescue operations , an opportunity to be involved.
Sad to see however , that here in Delaware ,some of them are disappearing.
