Across the USA Patch Project
the early 1990's we have been trying to complete
a collection of fire department patches from all
the Monticello's across the USA. There are at
least 17 Villages/Cities that have taken the
note at this time our
objective is to complete a collection of
"Monticello" only patches. Any one that can help
with our NO Shows will be rewarded. We do not
actively trade other patches at this time.
Departments with active web
pages or additional information the patch
will activate the link to that info and site.
Horeb, Jenkinsville S. C.
work in progress finally takes shape!
Here we have the completed article after
may years of mailings, phone calls and dead end
searches. Started in 1992 now the
collection is framed and on display in our
meeting room. Many thanks to all who helped with
completing our task.
Departments that have not responded!!
Mexico This is virtually a ghost town quite
interesting place and area near Truth or
Consequences NM click on New Mexico for more
a village of about 2000 lists about 3
departments I assume that some only cover rural
letters sent to them remain unanswered have even
enclosed our patch and money for the return yet
no response from them. Made a series of phone
calls to the village and did locate the current
Chief Terrill Slade and talked with him the
response was "don't have any money for patches
check back in 6 months". Do know that members of
that department went out east to pick up a wild
land fire suppression truck gotten through Home
Land Security Grant and they did stop at
Monticello MO trying to collect patches for
themselves. They are in the process of
constructing a new "Public Safety" building and
the village itself as adopted a "Village Logo"
maybe in the future they may have something.
