Norwood firefighters raise $3,500 for 2 fallen firefighters’ families

Donations still being accepted

This past Saturday night, the Norwood Fire Department held a well attended fundraiser at the Indian Mound Café to benefit the families of fallen Colerain Township firefighters Robin Broxterman and Brian Schira. Norwood firefighter and paramedic Jeff Lackmeyer told Channel 9, “We had a lot of people coming up to us asking what they could do to help, so we thought we’d put something together.”

The NFD’s Capt. Montgomery told us earlier this morning, “The benefit was entirely Jeff’s idea, and it was a huge success. The Mound was packed Saturday night, TV stations were there covering it, and a grand total of $3,500 was donated by the end of the evening.” All of the money will go directly to the families of the fallen firefighters. It’s not too late to donate - just drop your donation off at the fire station at 4725 Montgomery Road.
