New Changes for NVFC Membership

The National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC) is the leading nonprofit membership association representing the interests of volunteer firefighters, EMS providers, and rescue personnel. The NVFC values its members and strives to offer benefits and programs that address the critical needs of the fire, emergency medical, and rescue services. In order to continue providing the best services possible for our members, the NVFC is making some updates to its member benefits and dues rates.

We are excited to announce new benefits for NVFC members that are rolling out this fall and winter. These include:

  • An online member community forum, Volunteer Voices
  • Discounts on AT&T plan options that include access to FirstNet
  • New, user-friendly Virtual Classroom
  • And more!

In addition, starting January 1, 2019, there will be a small increase to our membership dues. While we work to keep our dues as low as possible, we do occasionally have to adjust the rates to be able to provide outstanding benefits and services for our members. View a comparison of the new and current rates at This is the first dues increase since 2012 and allows the NVFC to offer the new benefits as well as keep our current benefits, including:

  • A $10,000 accidental death and dismemberment insurance policy through Provident (doubles to $20,000 LODD)
  • Free online training through the NVFC Virtual Classroom
  • Educational discounts to online universities and fire service training
  • Eligibility for membership in the FASNY Federal Credit Union
  • Eligibility to apply for members-only opportunities such as gear giveaways and educational scholarships
  • Special rates and plans on accident and critical illness coverage, including cancer
  • Discounts on gear, background checks, fire service expos, entertainment, and more!

If you are not an NVFC member, join today to receive all of these great benefits while helping to further the important work of the NVFC. Your support enables the NVFC to provide advocacy, resources, information, and tools vital to the fire and emergency services. If you join or renew prior to January 1, 2019, you will be able to take advantage of the 2018 rates.
