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!

Sharing the Road Safely with School Buses 

School buses are one of the safest forms of transportation on the road today. In fact, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, riding a bus to school is 13 times safer than riding in a passenger vehicle and 10 times safer than walking to school. The reality of school bus safety is that more children are hurt outside the bus than inside as passengers. Most of the children who lose their lives in bus-related crashes are pedestrians, four to seven years old, who are hit by the bus or by motorists illegally passing a stopped school bus. For this reason, it is necessary to know the proper laws and procedures for sharing the road safely with school buses:

 All 50 states have a law making it illegal to pass a school bus that is stopped to load or unload children. School buses use yellow flashing lights to alert motorists that they are preparing to stop to load or unload children. Red flashing lights and an extended stop sign arm signals to motorists that the bus is stopped and children are getting on or off the bus. All 50 states require that traffic in both directions stop on undivided roadways when students are entering or exiting a school bus. While state laws vary on what is required on a divided roadway, in all cases, traffic behind the school bus (traveling in the same direction) must stop. The area 10 feet around a school bus is where children are in the most danger of being hit. Stop your car far enough from the bus to allow children the necessary space to safely enter and exit the bus. Be alert. Children are unpredictable. Children walking to or from their bus are usually very comfortable with their surroundings. This makes them more likely to take risks, ignore hazards or fail to look both ways when crossing the street. Never pass a school bus on the right. It is illegal and could have tragic consequences.
