Anniversary of the Toxic Fire of 78

Monday, February 2, 2015   37 years have passed since what most know of as the Wade Dump Fire. 6 years have now passed since the Delaware County Fallen Firefighter & EMS Memorial Committee took on the task to create a memorial to remember those who suffered and call attention to those lives effected by the "Toxic Fire of 1978". 
It took us 10 years to create and build the Memorial in Rose Tree Park. 

We have always been thankful for your gracious financial support and for not using the Wade name any longer.  
This anniversary of the Toxic Fire of 78 on February 2nd, please take a moment to read about what happened, prepare yourself for your next call and spread the word.  
Your help is still needed, we are close to our goal but not close enough. Donations are still being accepted at out post office box, just put "toxic fire of 78" in the memo field.
