Message to Community and Friends
The Fire Department is managed and operated by its own volunteer members
and most of its fiscal support is provided by the town. The department's
volunteer members, donations from the community and friends, and its
membership in the Lake Region Mutual Aid Company allows us to provide a
level of fire and rescue protection that greatly exceeds its cost in tax
Our Thanks to the Town
We are grateful to the Town of Mt. Vernon's elected Selectmen for their
support. We also would like to thank the voters and tax payers of the town
for their support over the years.
Thanks to our Supporters
The Department is fortunate to have had many supporters over the years, some
of whom are summer residents and friends just visiting our town. They attend
the functions that help support us and are generous with their donations.
Thanks to our Families
We are truly thankful to the families of our Firefighters for all the time
the Firefighters give up with their families when doing the Department's work.
We know that this is especially hard for young families and special thanks
go out to them.
The Fire Department provides services to the community, other then its
primary function of fire protection and rescue service.
