2020 UNDERCLIFF VFC CAR RAFFLE - OCTOBER 31, 2020


This year’s car is a 2020 Subaru Crosstrek 2.0L Premium! The drawing will take place this year on October 31, 2020 due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. The drawing is based on the PA Lottery "Pick 4” evening drawing (First draw only, no wild ball combinations included) and the prize is guaranteed. If by chance there are unsold tickets and one were to hit, the drawing will go until the next day until we have a winner. Someone will win this car!! Tickets are $10 a piece and you get two chances per ticket!


We understand these are unprecedented times right now and many people are dealing with a lot of things. We are right there with you. The COVID-19 pandemic has cancelled much of our fundraisers lately, including our Bingo which one of our largest money makers. As you can imagine this placed quite the financial burden on our station. Our car raffle was planned and purchased well before the COVID-19 pandemic hit which left us in a predicament on next steps. Ultimately, we have decided to move forward with the 2020 Car Raffle and now have options to keep everyone safe while still trying to raise funds to protect the community.


The 2020 Undercliff VFC Car Raffle will begin NOW with contactless online sales until we get the all clear from government to sell in person! That’s right, you can now purchase your car raffle tickets right online without leaving your house or interacting with anyone! Simply click "Buy Now” below to begin the process! Then just select how many tickets, pay with either PayPal or Credit/Debit Card, and you are done! We will then mail you your tickets (US Only) and send a digital copy via email. Its as simple as that! There is just a small $1.00 online fee to cover shipping and processing fees on online orders. (Winner is responsible for title/transfer fee as well as picking up the car.)


We thank you in advance for all your continued support! We are so very fortunate to have such great residents and businesses in our community. All the money we raise goes right back in to protecting the community we serve. We would not be here if it wasn’t for all of you! Thank you again for supporting one of our biggest fundraisers of the year!

MEMBERS ALWAYS NEEDED


Have you ever considered joining your local volunteer fire company? Do you have the drive to help your community and serve your neighbors?

Undercliff VFC is always looking for new members to join our family. We have two classes of membership here at Undercliff. We offer both firefighter and business member classes of membership. All firefighters receive FREE training from the company and are on the front lines to help people in their time of need. Our business members help raise the funds we need to purchase life saving equipment for our firefighters and also help with the day to day administrative roles here.

The following video was filmed, edited, and directed entirely by our members. It shows just what it is like to be a member here at Undercliff VFC and what it means to our members. We ask everyone to take 10 minutes and learn a little more about your local volunteer fire company. We can always use new members and encourage anyone out there that is on the fence about join to give it a try!

Feel free stop by any Monday to Friday night to talk to us and pick up an application. You can also message us directly with any questions. There has never been a better time to getting solved and volunteers are definitely needed!

DON’T WAIT, JOIN OUR TEAM TODAY!

431 CALLS FOR SERVICE IN 2019


Undercliff VFC closed out 2019 with 431 calls for service. These calls can range anywhere from working fires, car accidents, odor investigations, fire alarms, flooding calls, and many many more. We do not run and QRS or medical calls here so these are strictly fire service calls. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week we are here to protect our residents and businesses. As you can imagine running all these calls takes a lot of time and dedication from our members and they do it all for free. We receive no tax funding here at Undercliff and rely strictly on fundraising as our main source of revenue.


Thank you again to everyone who supported us this past year. Whether you came to our bingo, bought one of our raffle tickets, or supported our annual fund drive, we could not do it without you! All the money we raise goes back towards our mission of providing first class emergency services to our residents and businesses.


We look forward to your continued support and to serving you in 2020!

2019 YEAR IN REVIEW VIDEO


As 2019 comes to a close, we have a lot to look back on and reflect on over the last year here at Undercliff VFC. It was an extremely busy year for us at our station. Through all the emergency calls, trainings, classes, and fundraisers, our members dedicated thousands of hours towards protecting our community. It is important to mention that they do all of this FOR FREE and are 100% volunteer. Below are some milestones for the Undercliff VFC for the year 2019:


-We had new members either complete or start their training at the Allegheny County Fire Academy

-We completed all the necessary classes to become a Rapid Intervention Team (RIT)

-We had many members complete their driver’s training on various vehicles within the company

-Our members completed a combined 2,000 HOURS of training both in house and out of station classes

-We took in quite a few new members this past year allowing us to grow


These are just a few quick accomplishments from the past year, but there are also many more. We could not be more proud of our members and their hard work ethic. The following video our 2019 "Year in Review Video” that is made in house. This video is debuted each year at our annual Christmas Party and has become a fund tradition for everyone to look forward to. It show cases some of the hard work and fun times that occur each day here at Undercliff VFC. Take a couple minutes and enjoy this video as we look back on the year 2019.


Lastly, a big THANK YOU goes out to all of you! We could not do what we do if it wasn’t for the support of our residents and families. Your generosity and support allows us to keep our doors open and continue to serve the community that we love so much. So thank you again for everything! Please be safe tonight in all your New Year’s celebrations!


HAPPY NEW YEAR!

~The officers and members of Undercliff VFC
