Commisioner's Corner

We are constantly looking for grants made available by various organizations to help us fulfill our obligation to our community.   Over the past 5 years, we have been very fortunate to obtain almost $500,000.00 in grants.   With these grants we have purchased a new fire attack engine, new turnout gear, training aids, forestry firefighting equipment, a thermal imaging camera and other miscellaneous equipment.   Soon, a new ambulance will occupy our station, 80% paid for by a grant from the State Dept. of EMS.  This is money that we have not had to pull from the local tax revenues to provide our citizens with the best protection possible.  It is important to know, we not only give of our time to service our community, but we are taxpayers too.   It is also important to point out, if the volunteer system were to go away, the cost of fire and rescue in Isle of Wight would go up by millions of dollars a year.  In 2013, the TOTAL operating budget from the County for Volunteer Fire and Rescue Services was $1,215,583.00.   The total County Budget was $94,460,625.00.  That means that Volunteer Fire & Rescue agencies received 1.2% of the overall County operating budget.   We have long been good stewards of the Citizens tax dollars.   We will continue that tradition as long as we are able.   Contact a member today or fill out the online application if you would like to join our team! 

Officer's Corner

Brush / Grass / Tree Fire Safety

On average, 976 brush, grass, or forest fires were reported per day in the United States.

 Keep weeds and grass cut.

 Provide enough water to keep plants healthy and green. Keep irrigation systems in good working order.

 Remove dead and piled up vegetation, and dispose of it properly.

 Properly dispose of trash and debris.

 Stack any and all that is being put away for storage away from structures, fences, or any other combustible materials.

 Create at least 30 foot safe zone around your home that is free of anything that may ignite and spread to the structure.

 Keep the roof clear. Sweep gutters and eaves, and wash the roof on a regular basis to get rid of dry needles and leaves.

 Trim dead wood off trees that are located close to the residence.

 Avoid parking cars, trucks or recreational vehicles on dry grass or brush. Exhaust systems on vehicles can reach a temperature of more than 1,000 degrees; it only takes about 500 degrees to start a brush fire in hotter weather.

 Maintain a 10-foot area that is free of brush and shrubbery around grills and propane tanks.

 ALWAYS dispose of cigarettes carefully. Do not ever drop cigarettes or matches that are not fully extinguished.

 Make sure to keep a shovel, bucket of water, fire extinguisher, or other fire suppression tools on hand in case of emergency.
