Fire Fighter volunteers are at a critically low level

An email from the Virginia Fire Chiefs Association (VFCA) indicates Fire Fighter volunteers are at a critically low level across the United States.

The lack of volunteers hampers any Fire Departments ability to meet community needs.

In an effort to bolster volunteer recruitment a statewide public service(PSA) campaign has been launched.

You’ve Seen Us is a video campaign that features some local firefighters.

Some cuts from the video that was shot in May in Winchester is included in the campaign.

So the announcements will include some Frederick County and Winchester fire fighters as well.
