Commisioner's Corner

We are constantly looking for grants made available by various organizations to help us fulfill our obligation to our community.   Over the past 5 years, we have been very fortunate to obtain almost $500,000.00 in grants.   With these grants we have purchased a new fire attack engine, new turnout gear, training aids, forestry firefighting equipment, a thermal imaging camera and other miscellaneous equipment.   Soon, a new ambulance will occupy our station, 80% paid for by a grant from the State Dept. of EMS.  This is money that we have not had to pull from the local tax revenues to provide our citizens with the best protection possible.  It is important to know, we not only give of our time to service our community, but we are taxpayers too.   It is also important to point out, if the volunteer system were to go away, the cost of fire and rescue in Isle of Wight would go up by millions of dollars a year.  In 2013, the TOTAL operating budget from the County for Volunteer Fire and Rescue Services was $1,215,583.00.   The total County Budget was $94,460,625.00.  That means that Volunteer Fire & Rescue agencies received 1.2% of the overall County operating budget.   We have long been good stewards of the Citizens tax dollars.   We will continue that tradition as long as we are able.   Contact a member today or fill out the online application if you would like to join our team!

Be Aware of Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 400 people die annually of carbon monoxide poisoning. Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless vapor that is sometimes produced by gas furnaces and space heaters. Symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning include nausea, dizziness, severe headache, confusion, and unconsciousness. If you notice these symptoms in yourself or a family member, go to the emergency room right away.

If you have a central gas heater, use gas-powered space heaters, or have a fireplace, install carbon monoxide detectors in your home. These inexpensive devices, which are available from retailers like Target and Amazon, provide a warning if you have elevated carbon monoxide levels in your home. Even if you already have detectors, make sure they are in proper working order and change the batteries so you can be certain that they're fresh.
