Dear Family and Friends,
As many of you know, I am a member of the Board of Directors for the Cos Cob Fire Police Patrol. I've been a member of the Patrol for the past two years and the organization has a big role in my life and my community. As Secretary of this fine organization, I am keenly aware of the need for fundraising and keeping the patrol at the forefront of safety and technology. Each and every day, members of the patrol are called upon to assist with incidents including traffic accidents on I-95, fires, flooded houses and business, and more. All the members of the Patrol are volunteers living within the Greenwich community.

This year, as part of our Annual Benefit, being held on Saturday, March 28, we are participating in a 100-gallon Challenge. Many of you are probably asking “What exactly is a 100-gallon Challenge?”–well…firefighters need water to put out fires, right? This is where you come in, I am asking for your support in donating a gallon of water. Each gallon is $25 and the goal is to get to 100 gallons.
There is one catch; however, I need 100 different people to buy a gallon. We cannot put out a fire with just a few people, it take's many people working together!
I hope you will consider supporting me and the Cos Cob Fire Police Patrol! If you feel like you want to give more, please pass this on to your family and friends.
How fast can we get to 100-gallons? Thanks, in advance, for your support!

After a fantastic inaugural event last year with tremendous support from all over the community, we look forward to the opportunity to make this year’s event an even bigger success.
The Cos Cob Fire Police Patrol was founded in 1927 and remains in continuous operation to date. We are one of the last operating fire salvage companies in the United States. The primary mission of a salvage company like ours is to protect personal property from smoke, fire and water damage in fires and other emergencies. Our priority during emergency situations is to first salvage family photographs, artwork and other heirlooms which are often irreplaceable. We enter burning structures alongside suppression firefighters to perform these tasks and mitigate the damage to personal property. Aside from our salvage work, the Patrol is active at most emergency scenes to assist in setting up a perimeter to keep the public and fellow first responders safe.
This year we are privileged to honor Bobby Valentine with the 2015 Chief’s Award. Valentine, sports legend and former Director of Public Safety & Health for the City of Stamford, has strong ties the First Responder community. Most recently, Valentine coordinated a donation to the Connecticut Burn Center on behalf of the Cos Cob Fire Police Patrol, Inc. and the National Hockey League. Mr. Valentine’s commitment to volunteerism is greatly respected the Patrol, whose members donate hundreds of hours of time to serving the community.
The Patrol is a 501(c)3 Organization, and any contribution to The Patrol is tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
