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!

~~Important spring cleaning home fire safety tips from the NFPA:

Fact: Working smoke alarms cut the risk of dying in reported home fires in half.
•Ensure smoke alarms are installed inside every bedroom, outside each sleeping area and on every level of the home, including the basement.
•Test them at least once a month by pushing the test button.
•Replace batteries in all smoke alarms at least once a year. If an alarm “chirps,” warning the battery is low, replace the battery right away.

Fact: The leading cause of home clothes dryer fires is failure to clean them.
•Clean the lint filter before or after each load of laundry. Remove lint that has collected around the drum.
•Keep the area around your dryer clear of things that can burn, like boxes, cleaning supplies and clothing.

Fact: Most cooking fires in the home involve the stovetop.
•Keep anything that can catch fire — oven mitts, wooden utensils, food packaging, towels or curtains — away from your stovetop.
•Always stay in the kitchen when frying on the stovetop.

Fact: Extension cord fires outnumbered fires beginning with permanent or detachable power cords by two-to-one.
•Check electrical cords to make sure they are not running across doorways or under carpets. Extension cords are intended for temporary use.
•Have a qualified electrician add more receptacle outlets so you don’t have to use extension cords.
