Coaldale Volunteer Fire Company No. 1's annual fund drive is under way.
The organization, which serves the borough of Coaldale, as well as assists in emergency situations in Lansford, Summit Hill and Tamaqua, is asking the community for donations to help keep the fire company in operation. Mailings for the 2010 fund drive went out in late January.
Kevin Steber, first assistant fire chief and president of the department, said that the company operates mainly on donations and through the company's fundraising efforts.
