***** ATTENTION *****


In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the safety of our community and our firefighters takes top priority.  In order to maximize our ability to respond to emergencies, we will need to minimize our exposure risks.  The Kutztown Fire Co. Truck Crew is suspending our door-to-door sales for our Annual Kauffman’s Chicken BBQ sale, scheduled for Saturday, April 4th.  The event is still on for April 4th.  If you are still interested in purchasing a ticket for that day please contact a firefighter, call us at 610-683-8703 ext. 1, or email us at tickets@kutztownfire.com to make arrangements for purchase. 

If there are any changes to this, we will make additional announcements.

We will also be holding a second Kauffman’s Chicken BBQ sale this year on Saturday, August 8th.  Please continue to follow our Facebook page and website for updates.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us via the methods listed above.  As always, thank you for your continued support!
