Scam Warning from Fire Department


Recently we have learned of both phone and mail solicitations for donations from a group The Volunteer Firefighter Alliance. The callers and the mailings lead you to believe that this group is representing City of Jefferson and also Jefferson County Volunteer firefighters and are soliciting donations on our behalf.

This group DOES NOT represent Jefferson Fire Department or Jefferson County Fire Departments and does not have any permission to solicit under our organizations name.

Please be wary of any solicitation from outside organizations like this. The City of Jefferson conducts all of our own fundraising efforts and does not ever use any outside organization to represent us.

Thank you
Chief Ron Wegner
Jefferson Fire Dept.

1st Annual Jefferson Winter Market

This December 2nd and 3rd the Chamber of
Commerce and the City of Jefferson will host 
the Jefferson Outdoor Winter Market event.

Firehouse ally will be transformed into a small outdoor market. Saturday night is the 22nd Annual Holiday parade of Lights in downtown Jefferson—a favorite event for locals with the finale being the arrival of Santa himself! As part of this event, the Outdoor Winter market will be open all day leading up to and after the parade. Local businesses will serve refreshments, offer Holiday items and serve hot chocolate and Gluehwein—a traditional German holiday wine-based beverage.

After Santa arrives in the parade, the Rotary Park lights will be illuminated to start the month long Winter Nights, River Lights holiday display. Immediately following, Santa will greet children and families in the Chamber of Commerce office which is adjacent to the Outdoor Winter Market in Firehouse Alley. Sunday will host another round of winter events as well as the Santa house. More details to follow.
