The Fredonia Volunteer Fire Department is once again conducting its annual fund drive. While Village and Town taxes do provide for the Department’s operational expenses, the Fund Drive supports the activities of the Fredonia Volunteer Fire Department and its fire companies, along with essential equipment to better provide emergency services to your family and friends.

The members of the Fredonia Fire Department do many things throughout the year with calls, drills and community events. Here is some of what has been completed. 2018 total calls: 2,089. Total call hours 8,388. Total training hours 3,600.  New this year, the Fredonia Fire Department will provide quarterly CPR training for the members and the community at large.

Due to lack of sufficient staffing, we may not be able to collect parts of the Town of Pomfret, please send donation by mail, if you still want someone to come to your house we will send someone.

The Fire Department continues to transport more patients, as a reminder no co-pays for transport service are collected from Village and Town residents.

We realize the poor economy in Western New York affects many of our citizens and making a donation this year may be more difficult now than it was in the past. No matter what the amount, please consider making a donation again this year.

Our members volunteer their time and provide their own transportation for training, fire calls, and other emergencies, as well as fund drive collection activities.  Please help save our Volunteers time and money by responding to this donation request before May 11, 2019.  Even if your answer is no, please send this form back to us by May 11, 2019 so that you may be removed from this year’s door-to-door drive.

This Fund Drive will be our only community-wide fund raising event in 2019. We thank you for your generous support in the past, present and the future.

                                                                                                          Sincerely
