While there are some grant funds available that they can apply for each year, your volunteer first responders receive little or no direct funding from either the state or the county.

At any time of the night or day, they lay their lives on the line to respond to your fires and medical emergencies, and they even remove fallen trees and other hazards from your roadways. For the privilege of protecting you, many of them spend their entire annual vacation taking required training; while you are lounging on the beach with your family, they are sitting in a classroom or practicing their skills. In addition to basic fire fighter training, your EMTs and Paramedics have additional extensive training required for their medical skills. [Training video]

Have you ever considered the cost of operating and maintaining those big, shiny trucks? What about insurance for their apparatus and station houses? They even buy their own protective clothing and equipment. The ever-escalating cost of government-mandated worker’s compensation insurance has literally bankrupted many volunteer fire departments in West Virginia over the past year or two, and forced them to shut down! Who will respond to help your family if your local VFD isn’t there?

You can help by supporting your area Volunteer Fire Department fundraising activities whenever you possibly can.

Thank you for your support!

The East Wood VFD will hold a chili cookoff from 4pm to 7pm on November 19 at the main fire station on Rt. 47 in Davisville.

This cookoff is for the public to judge our firefighters and determine who gets the bragging rights. We will have many varieties to sample along with cornbread, desserts, drinks, and hot dogs for anyone who may not like chili.

Admission is $5 for adults and $3 for children. Admission price is good for cornbread, dessert, a drink, and unlimited chili.
