Each year your East Meadow Volunteer Fire Department asks for your help during our annual fund drive season.
Now for 2024, we ask for your support once more.
For just a $40.00 a year, you can help us maintain the outstanding level of service our community has come to know.
Our solicitation for a donation has recently been mailed to your home or business.
Don’t have the funds this year?. Please disregard this notice with our hopes for a better 2024. Have the funds and want to donate more than the asking $40.00? You would be making a difference in how our organization operates financially.
NOW YOU CAN DONATE ON LINE: You can make your donation with our safe and secure service. Simply go to our website at EastMeadowFD.Com. click on the Donation link on our home page and make your donation.
We remain hopeful that our residents will not forget this sound, professional organization, that proudly protects our community, when they need us the most.
Once received, your address will be removed from the list for any other 2024 EMFD mailed reminders, should there be any others.
Facts are, our fire and EMS companies rely heavily on this once per year donation for all expenses to run our companies, and department for expenses not covered by your tax dollars. For this reason, our firefighters and medical technicians are directly impacted for their operating expense needs, refreshments after alarms, additional insurance, and many other purchases they will make during the year.
In closing, please be aware that there a several other organizations representing the fire service, some from out of New York State, that could solicit your donation. Although some are valid companies that put money into the national fire service. To date, none of this funding has ever gone to the benefit of our organization to protect the residents here in the East Meadow Fire District.
For that reason, we ask that you take a moment to ensure your mail-in donation is going directly to the East Meadow Volunteer Fire Department as outlined in our campaign with a return address of:
PO Box 101
East Meadow Avenue
East Meadow New York 11554-0101.
Please take care of yourselves as we wish you the happy and safe of holiday season, and New Year.
On behalf of Chief Philip Fertitta, his Asst Chiefs James Walsh, Michael Wood, and Kurt Becker, we wish all our residents a safer, happier, and healthier new year.
As always, we thank you for your donation. It is very much appreciated.
