Good luck to all of the Fredonia based athletes competing this spring sports season!

The Fredonia Volunteer Fire Department is once again conducting its annual fund drive. While Village and Town taxes do provide for the Department’s operational expenses, the Fund Drive supports the activities of the Fredonia Volunteer Fire Department and its fire companies, along with essential equipment to better provide emergency services to your family and friends.

The Fredonia Fire Department has always had the ability to transport, but does not compete with a local ‘for profit’ paid ambulance service. Over the last few years, the paid ambulance service has not been available more and more often due to their need to transport more and more patients to Buffalo and Erie.  The Fredonia Fire Department has been filling filled the gap, but did not previously charge the patient for this service. The Village recently elected to charge medicare, medicaid and insurance companies a comparable fee to transport patients. A third party billing company sends out the bills and receives the payments. These fees are then received by the Village and used to offset Village and Town taxes. The Village opted NOT to collect co pays from Village and Town residents. The Fredonia Volunteer Fire Department does not receive any of these funds.

We realize the poor economy in Western New York affects many of our citizens and making a donation this year may be more difficult now than it was in the past. No matter what the amount, please consider making a donation again this year.

Our members volunteer their time and provide their own transportation for training, fire calls, and other emergencies, as well as fund drive collection activities.  Please help save our Volunteers time and money by responding to this donation request before May 14, 2016.  Even if your answer is no, please send this form back to us by May 14, 2016 so that you may be removed from this year’s door-to-door drive.

This Fund Drive will be our only community-wide fund raising event in 2016. We thank you for your generous support in the past, present and the future.

 

Sincerely,

Kurt Maytum- Fire Chief
