The Milton Public Safety Association is made up of the members of Milton Fire-Rescue and Milton Police Department. The association is a separate entity from the Town of Milton and it's primary mission is to support the departments that it represents in ways that the town can not. The association has purchased equipment for the departments that the town could not financially support or maybe inappropriate to be purchased by tax dollars. In addition the Public Safety Association often donates to youth programs in the town, charitable organizations, has Christmas gifts for seniors, has provided food baskets to those in need during the holidays.
Milton Public Safety Association raises funds through fund raisers such as the twice annual tractor pulls held at Mi-Te-Jo Campground in Milton. The association provides food for the event staff and spectators. Often topping one thousand dollars at each event this has been the main source of income for the association for the last ten years. Mi-Te-Jo Campground also donates all aluminum cans from the campers over the course of the camping season to the association bring in an additional $800 each year. Other sources of income come in the form of donations from both individuals and various local groups.
Our most successful fundraiser to date has been the recently completed calendar raffle earning nearly $5,000 to go towards the proposed fire/EMS facility. The members of this department have discussed using this money and any future earnings to pay for the cost of the kitchen in the new facility. The association plans on continuing this fund raiser on an annual basis so please keep an eye out for it each spring/summer.
