Reminder: Get Your Copy of the Volunteer Fire Service Anniversary Publication Today

In honor of the 275th anniversary of America’s volunteer fire service, the National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC) recently released a publication honoring the past, present, and future of our nation’s volunteers. A Proud Tradition: 275 Years of the American Volunteer Fire Service pays tribute to the millions of dedicated individuals who protect our communities every day and honors the rich heritage of volunteers.

A Proud Tradition looks at the evolution of America’s volunteer fire service, from its earliest beginnings, to changes in equipment and apparatus, to current issues facing today’s volunteers such as expanding scope and recruitment and retention. Sections also cover training, women in the fire service, and community involvement. The publication not only looks at where the fire service came from, but also where it stands today and where it is headed in the future.
