Thanks to Bladen County Firefighters Association who voted unanimously last night to add $2 per member to their dues to go annually to the NCFFF for support. This philanthropic endeavor will amount to around $1,000 per year of financial support. Thanks to Bladen County for all of their support of the Foundation.
Does this sound like a great way to show support? Bring it up at your next County Firefighters Association or Department meeting and make a difference also. With your help we can honor those who have given their all. Firefighting is a brotherhood that supports each other.
