NORTH WARREN VOLUNTEER
FIRE & RESCUE
Proudly serving our community through the joint effort of
volunteer and career personnel.
The purpose of North Warren Volunteer Fire & Rescue of Warren County Virginia is to provide emergency and public services to any resident within Warren County, visitor to our county, or any mutual jurisdiction requesting assistance. These services may include but are not limited to fire prevention, suppression activities, emergency medical service, rescue, or education and public services.
NWVFR Announces 2020 Capital Fund Drive
This year we are conducting a capital fund drive in order to raise funds to purchase a new vehicle to replace our 2005 Rescue/Engine. It is imperative that we have emergency vehicles that we trust will be able to respond and perform their task when called upon. Our Rescue/Engine is a dual purpose emergency vehicle that carries fire suppression equipment and extrication tools for persons trapped in vehicle accidents, farm mishaps, and industrial emergencies. In 2005 the present truck cost was $291,000 not counting hand tools and other required equipment. The new R/E is estimated to cost $500,000 as new safety standards for emergency vehicles are required by OSHA and NFPA. We feel we can keep the price lower than what's been estimated by focusing on "function not flashy". It's important that we keep in mind that these are donated and tax dollars.
Presently out truck committee is working on the specifications for the new vehicle and our hope is to have a contract signed by year's end. However, there is much work to be done before we get to that point. Very few volunteer organizations have the funds to purchase these vehicles. Most are purchased with loans or lease's that run 15 years. We feel in order to manage the payments we need $100,000 as a down payment. Presently we have $30,205 in our truck fund.
We will continue our regular fund raisers which include hall rental, boot drives, on line yard sales, residential fund drive letters, and others. As part of our RFD we will be touching base with many of the National and International businesses in our first due area to ask for their assistance in this monumental task. Donations can be made on line by clicking the link above. We are an IRS 501c3 nonprofit organization and your donation is tax deductible. FIN-1856836
You may follow our progress on our web site and face book page.
As always we appreciate the support of your local fire department.
As you can tell from the graph above Covid-19 has put a halt on fund raising, your donation is important for NWVFR to continue to operate.

To all our friends and supporters of North Warren Fire and Rescue,
the board of directors has decided not to hold our July and August pancake breakfasts.
This decision was made after evaluating related income versus expenses which revealed
very little profit the first half of this year. We will be discussing the status of this and
other fundraising efforts at our next membership meeting. As always, we greatly appreciate
the community's continued support of our organization as we move forward.

BOD: Reggie Fritts,
If you have used our celebration/meeting hall we would welcome any feedback you may have. In 2019 we are making changes so the hall has multifunctional use. This includes weddings and receptions, dances, business meetings, training classes, banquets, dinners, and more. This year there are plans to upgrade the bathrooms, curtains, new paint and maximize use of the commercial kitchen. The rental hall is a major fund raiser for NWVFR as we prepare to replace the Rescue/Engine next year at a cost of over $500,000. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any feedback that will allow us to serve you better.
