The Monthly Firefighter Funny

Want to help your local Fire Department in a different way?

The NMVFD is in need of some things that you could possibly donate.  You may have seen our Fire Train kids ride at our last Summerfest.  We are storing the train at a personal residence and could really use a 14ft covered trailer to store and transport the train to local events.  If you would be gracious enough to donate one of these or even know where we could get a smoking deal, please contact the NMVFD.

We would like to thank all of you who have already brought us or mailed in your donations this year.  We still need many more of you to do this as well.  These mail outs are a large part of our yearly fundraising.  This year you can donate online

right here.
