For the many new residents in the Fairview Township who don’t know, Fairview Fire & Rescue is a volunteer Fire, Rescue and EMS company. Our operating funds come from the generosity of the 26% of residents and businesses in our township that donate to us. We ask that everyone in the Fairview Township consider giving what they can in order to help us, any amount is helpful. The fact that we continue to be a volunteer department helps everyone save money. If we were not here doing what we do for free, the township would be forced to staff and equip a municipal run department, which in turn would raise the taxes of every resident and business in the area.
In 2020, we understand the pressure that everyone is feeling due to the state of emergency and the fact that many are currently unemployed. However, emergencies don’t stop due to an unseen danger such as the Covid virus and we are still here operating protecting life and property in our township making every dollar stretch the best we can. Additionally, the CARES act for the Covid emergency has increased the deductible donations to non-profit organizations.
