The fire Department says the funds will go towards offsetting unreimbursed medical expenses, future educational expenses for Pickett's two daughters and a fire prevention endowment fund in Pickett's name.
Pickett, 29, and his family were involved in a crash December 8 while returning from a family gathering in the Wisconsin Dells area. The Dodge County Sheriff's Office says Pickett's car was driving east on STH 68 when it crossed the centerline on a curve and hit a semi.
Pickett died at the scene. His wife and two daughters were hurt and taken to a Madison area hospital. The condition of his family has not been released.
