Raffle Rules

CURRENT RAFFLES

Raffle is valid from time of initial posting until last ticket is sold.

Raffle items will typically be placed on the Fire Department Facebook Page between the hours of 9AM and 10PM to allow for individuals to have a chance at purchasing before selling out quickly. Special ad hoc raffles may be thrown in at random.  

Posts for items will be updated and marked as SOLD OUT when all chances for that item have been purchased.  The date and time for the drawing of that item will be listed as well.  

A numbered list of those who purchased chances will be posted prior to the raffle being drawn.  These are to be considered your ticket numbers. Along with your receipt indicating proof of purchase.

Winners will be contacted by email or phone from the fire company. Winners will also be posted on Facebook.  Extra details for pick-up of items may be included. Once successful contact has been made for the item, the post may be removed from the Facebook feed to eliminate confusion with current raffles.   

All prizes must be picked up within 30 days of the drawing. If not picked up, the company reserves the right to put the item up for raffle again, at which time the original winner waives their claim to the initial prize.  

If an item does not generate enough interest to sell all chances, at the discretion of the fire company, refunds will be issued.  This is the only circumstance where refunds will be issued.   The fire company also reserves the right to raffle the item if all chances have not been sold in order to eliminate item from inventory.

Winning a raffle is for the prize listed. No substitutions or cash exchange unless noted in the raffle announcement.
