Neighbors in the Tee Harbor area are binding together to host a Benefit Garage Sale from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, June 1, for the Lynn Canal Fire Hall. The event will be held at the Lynn Canal Fire Hall at Mile 18 on Glacier Highway.
The goal of the event is to “build community between the neighbors in the Tee Harbor Area, while meeting and showing appreciation to our volunteer and staff Fire Department,” organizer Judy Neary wrote in a release.
All proceeds will be donated to the Lynn Canal Fire Hall for the purpose of purchasing a Thermal Imaging Camera. This tool allows firefighters to see through smoke to locate trapped people inside a burning building, while also saving time, making firefighters safer and providing a valuable tool to minimize water and damage to the burning structure.
The Benefit Garage Sale is open to the public and there will be grilled hot dogs, lemonade and desserts for sale. The fire engines will be parked near the road with an “Open House” sign.
“We hope to have up to half a dozen fire fighters on site for tours and educational tips in surviving in a burning structure,” Neary said.
