The Fife Lake Springfield Fire Department is on call 24 hours a day, 365 days per year and ready to lend assistance to you, the valued members of our community.
Although we receive an operational budget from the townships we serve, it is not always enough to maintain the level of service we would like to provide. We thrive through your generous donations. The donations you make are used for four primary purposes:
. Help maintain and upgrade our fire house - things have come a long way! Fire houses need constant updating to house the larger and heavier equipment and other NFPA related upgrades
. Purchase updated and new equipment - the science of firefighting and rescue are constantly evolving along with the community's daily lives.
. Funding of advance training - we train to be ready to respond to the wide ranging needs of Fife Lake, Springfield and Union Townships.
. Funding for township activities at public events
Firefighters, as a group, are not very good at asking others for the help, yet your financial support is critical to us!
HOW CAN YOU HELP US?
TRAINING:We are always in need of vehicles to train with for fires, extrication, and other vehicle accidents. If you have a vehicle that is no longer usable to you, it can be donated to the fire department for a tax deduction (standard Blue Book Value)
Thinking about tearing down your home to build a new one? The fire department would love to have the opportunity to use the home before it’s torn down to use for training. There is a tax deduction benefit for this; just check with your tax professional.
