Meeting 2020’s Challenges Together – Your Support is Critical
To Our Community,
As 2020 began, your Hyattsville Volunteer Fire Department was looking ahead to another year of serving our community, something we have done proudly and continuously since 1888 — and that bond and commitment has only been strengthened through this challenging time.
Our dedicated volunteers — more than 100 of them — have worked tirelessly to not only respond to the community when its needed most, but be prepared for all possibilities with new training, advanced decontamination procedures and regularly updated standard operating procedures in the face of COVID-19.
Since the start of the pandemic, HVFD volunteers have met the challenge, providing more than 25,000 hours of fire, emergency medical and administrative/support time through September — a direct savings to taxpayers of over $1 million.
Over the past six months, you have demonstrated to us your commitment to support our non-profit department with donations to support personal protective equipment, meals for our crews and so much more to help us get through the pandemic together.
Our annual fall fund drive takes an even more key role as we’ve had to curtail our photo fund drive and other community events that are a major component our fund-raising efforts. Donations from our community donations go directly to training, equipment, uniforms, volunteer recruitment and retention programs and so much more.
Thank you for your continued support and stay safe.
