On September 5, 2010, Jay McKinney, a volunteer firefighter for Union Fire Company No.1, nearly lost his life in a very serious accident while on a day trip to north-central Pennsylvania with his family. Immediately airlifted to Geisinger Medical Center, he spent more than 6 weeks in the intensive care unit. Jay suffered a lacerated liver and colon and multiple broken bones, among other injuries. After many surgeries and excellent critical care, Jay is currently undergoing rehabilitation therapy. When Jay went back to thank the ICU staff who cared for him, they told him they didn’t think he would make it. His doctors and surgeons have told him he is a miracle.

Jay, a husband, father of two children and grandfather of four, is a lifetime resident of Chester County and for the past 4 years has been living in the Oxford area. In addition to spending time with his family and friends, Jay is devoted to helping his community by serving as a volunteer firefighter, a job which he is very passionate about. During his service Jay has earned certification to the level of National Firefighter 1, Vehicle Rescue Technician and was awarded 2008 Union Fire Company No.1 Firefighter of the Year.

Jay is self-employed, and in addition to the physical and emotional trauma the accident has caused, the financial burden is significant. Jay is still unable to work and his wife, Marylou, has only been able to work on a very limited basis since the accident occurred because she must care for Jay. Due to their loss of a regular income, their bills continue to mount. To help Jay and Marylou pay for his medical expenses, Union Fire Company No.1 and Jay’s family and friends are holding a beef and beer fundraising event on Saturday, February 12th from 4:00–9:00 p.m at the Union Fire Company No.1 Memorial Hall, 315 Market Street, Oxford, PA.

Please join us for food, drinks, and many raffle items including a leather helmet, Restaurant Gift Certificates and much, much more.
