Fluvanna VFD Talks To Grange
Jerry Raab of the Fluvanna Fire Department shared information to Ross Grange members at their April 12 meeting. He said many things have changed due to COVID. Regular fundraisers have not been possible; however, the fire tax paid by property owners helps with some expenses. Raab feels the county fly car service is a good thing, since most departments are short of EMTs. It is difficult to find volunteers –paramedics need five months of additional training. The drug problem with overdoses is constant. Fluvanna firemen answer an average of 500 calls a year.
Mary Jane Griffith, treasurer, presented the speaker with a check from Ross Grange members. A pancake lunch was served by Mrs. Griffith to those attending. A brief meeting was held following the program. The next meeting will be Monday, April 26, at the Falcon’s Nest. A dish to pass meal will be served at 6 p.m., with members of the Falconer Central School Board of Education giving a presentation at 7 p.m. The public is encouraged to attend with face masks and social distancing observed.
