Craig Chelf

Recently, one of our newest firefighters, Craig Chelf, was injured at home. He suffered three vertebra fractures and a broken arm. This injury has taken him on multiple ambulance trips and hospital visits, and has  placed Craig on the disabled list at the firehouse. Because he is so new to the fire department, Craig does not have enough paid sick leave to cover his time off to recover. He and his family will have a large amount of medical expenses. Members of the fire department are working out trade time to cover Craig's shifts and are also donating what they can to assist.
Craig and his wife both work really hard to provide for their little boy. I would like to raise money for the Chelf family to cover the expenses they have incurred and will continue to incur due to Craig's extended unpaid time off.

Please help one of our local heroes out with anything you can. Your donation will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance for your thoughts, prayers, and assistance for Craig and his family.

Thank you,
Gary Ronzheimer
