How long have you been an NVFC member?
Why are you an NVFC member?
I originally saw a need in my department for some assistance with record keeping. Then I was hooked; I wanted to help my department to achieve its best ability and help in any way that I could. NVFC afforded me the resources and opportunity to meet this goal. I like the frequent updates and articles in the newsletters, getting information of grant opportunities, and upcoming events. I am a member because I have a vision for our department and NVFC working together to make F.A.I.C. a great department and asset to the community.
What is your occupation?
Why are you a volunteer firefighter, EMT, or rescue provider?
My husband has been a volunteer firefighter for more than 20 years. With small children in our home I have been unable to actually fight the fires and decided to help in the only way I knew how – through paper shuffle and errand runner.
What year did you join the fire or emergency services?
