Volunteer Fire Departments Receive Free Refurbished Laptops

Laptops provided by CHEMTREC® to members of the National Volunteer Fire Council

Twelve volunteer fire departments will each receive a refurbished laptop this holiday season thanks to CHEMTREC®, in partnership with the National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC). CHEMTREC generously donated the laptops to give back to the hardworking and dedicated volunteers that give so much each day to serve their communities.

To be eligible, departments had to be more than 50 percent volunteer, have an annual revenue of $250,000 or less, and the applicant and/or chief had to be a member of the NVFC. The laptops are previously used but have been wiped clean.

Congratulations to the laptop recipients:

  • Mammoth (AZ) Fire & Medical District
  • Silver Lake Volunteer Fire Department (Wilson, NC)
  • Dorsey-Friendship Volunteer Fire Department (Fulton, MS)
  • Sheridan (MI) Fire Department
  • Putnam Volunteer Fire Department (Thomasville, AL)
