Aspinwall Volunteer Fire Department is selling St. Patrick’s Day long sleeved T-shirts for a fundraiser. Sales are due Feb. 22.

Aspinwall Volunteer Fire Department is taking orders for its fourth annual St. Patrick’s Day T-shirt fundraiser.

The bright green long-sleeved shirts are emblazoned with the department’s call number, 102, on the front and a saw-wielding leprechaun on the back.

Written in Gaelic is the phrase “Running through the flames.”

“It helps us celebrate with our community,” Assistant Chief J.C. Teyssier said. “It also helps us fund new equipment.”

Volunteers responded to 702 calls in 2018, while marking the department’s 125th anniversary, Teyssier said.

There are currently about 40 members. Leaders are always seeking new members. Teens, ages 15 to 17, are welcome to join as junior firefighters.

Shirts are available in sizes for youth and adults, from small to 4X. Costs range from $25 to $28. Deadline is Feb. 22.

To order, call Teyssier at 412-932-4959.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
