Your VFD during the Coronavirus Pandemic.
We Remain Ready and Able to Respond Whenever You Need Us
Just like everyone, we have had to make adjustments during this challenging situation. We are committed to the health, safety, and welfare of our community and must do our part to alleviate the spread of this significant health risk, but our emergency response is unaffected.
Fire Protection and EMS
Our volunteers are on duty just like always. Procedures for fire protection and accident calls are unchanged. On medical calls, our First Responders have been instructed to take extra precautions regarding protective gear (gloves, masks, etc.) and limit the number of personnel inside homes at one time. This is will help us lessen any risk of infection to you and us.
Meetings and Monthly Breakfast
Our regular training and business meetings are have resumed on the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month, as has the monthly breakfast at the Station One on the third Thursdays. Mask and social distancing rules will be implemented as dictated by ongoing circumstances. We will continue to provide updates via this website and our other public information outlets as things change.
Fundraisers and Events
The status of our major events and annual fundraisers is being continuously reviewed in light of changing circumstances. We were obliged to cancel them all in 2020. So far in 2021, both the Annual BBQ and the Sip and Stroll are moving forward with special precautions in place. The upcoming Golf Tournament, normally held in April, has been rescheduled for October 2, and the Bass Tournament is scheduled for October 16. Of course any of them may be cancelled if the situation demands.
We rely on these events for a significant portion of the funding that allows us to continue providing emergency medical response and fire protection. Cancellation had a serious impact last year, making your generosity toward our Annual Giving Campaign even more important.
