I am very proud to have an affiliation (rank of Captain) with the National Firefighters Endowment. In a time where budget cuts are putting fire departments across our country in precarious fiscal and operating situations, the NFE has become a option to all of us who serve to protect others, as a viable solution in obtaining funding assistance for equipment needed which helps us to provide the kind of services the public can and should expect from us. In today's economic climate, where grant money is becoming increasingly difficult to secure, it's a awesome feeling to know that an organization like the National Firefighters Endowment is willing to offer assistance when it's most desperately needed.
I have been a volunteer for this group for two years now. I have seen the dedication of helping out fire departments across the country. At a time where funding is being cut by government, it is the dedication of this group to help fill that need. I am proud to be a part of this worth group. Not only does this group provide funding for deparments, the go out of their way to welcome everyone into the organization making them part of the brotherhood. It has brought me closer to brothers from all over. My only regret is I didn't find them earlier. This group will be a part of me for the rest of my life.
I have been a part of helping to fund raise for the National Firefighters Endowment for under a year. I was impressed at the level of dedication that this organization has. They mean it when they say they take care of their own. Their work far exceeds their area, they are across the country helping were ever needed. I am proud to be a part of their orginization, even in just a small way. I am honored to call them Brothers and Sisters.
Great organization to be a part of. Keeps the brotherhood alive and helps firefighters and fire departments across the country!
