An online voting contest that was previously postponed due to technical errors has another chance to net the Outlook Fire Department with a cash prize of $24,000 if the voting numbers are in the crew’s favor.
The firm of My Mutual Insurance is putting a spotlight on the work done by first responders in communities across the province and thanking them for their hard work by sponsoring the contest, entitled ‘Responders First’.
The company is offering two prizes of $24,000 to two local groups of volunteer first responders in the province.
Voting began this morning, September 17 for the first cash prize and will run until September 24. After that, the top two entries with the most votes will be the recipient of $24,000 each.
“While some run out, they run in,” reads the promotional info from My Mutual Insurance. “In a world that seems to be out for themselves, there exists the selfless nature of the First Responder. We are excited to offer not just our hand out in thanks, but a hand up.”
The Outlook fire crew plans on using the potential prize money to upgrade their vehicle fleet.
The crew’s entry on the contest website reads as follows:
“The Outlook Fire Department serves the Town of Outlook and surrounding area. We currently provide water rescue, all types of fires and vehicle accident rescue services to 4000 residents and surrounding area. We are currently looking to upgrade our rescue van to a bigger vehicle to help us serve the community better. With the current pandemic going on we are unable to hold our fundraisers to purchase new equipment.”
People can vote in the online contest once per day, per IP address. You will be asked to confirm your email address with your first vote, after which you can vote every day.
