Halifax VFD members say thanks
To the editor:
As we enter into this holiday season, we would like to thank our community for their generous support with our recent letter drive. The donations from our friends and neighbors allow us to continue to provide efficient and effective emergency response to the Town of Halifax and surrounding areas.
We remain a 100 percent volunteer agency and would not be able to continue to protect the lives and properties of our area without this support.
We are also excited to share news of a new application available for download that will allow users to create a comprehensive fire safety plan as well as gain additional knowledge on fire prevention.
FireSafe Family VA was recently launched by the Virginia Department of Fire Programs and is available for iPhone, iPad, and Android device users. In addition to assisting users in creating a safety plan, the application provides periodic fire safety reminders and fun, interactive games for the whole family.
For more information or to download the app, go to www.vafire.com.
We wish everyone a safe and joyful holiday season.
Tina Wagstaff and members of the Halifax Volunteer Fire Department
