Mt. Lemmon raising funds to update aging radio system

Posted: Updated:
MT. LEMMON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Mt. Lemmon Fire Department is holding a fundraiser today to help update their communication system.

Radios are a crucial item for firefighters during emergencies, and the Mt. Lemmon fire department has not had an upgrade in more than 20 years. 

They were expecting about $20,000 from property taxes, but that did not happen, so no they are scrambling to make it work.

Organizers of the fundraiser are still in need of golfers and donations for today's event.  Tee time is 7:30 a.m. this morning at the Forty Niner Country Club at 12000 E. Tanque Verde Rd.
