The Franconia Volunteer Fire Department (FVFD) is looking for a few good men and women to assist in a vital mission. They desperately need your help as FVFD Administrative Members in our principal fund raising activity, BINGO. FVFD owns, operates and purchases all the fire apparatus at Fire Station 5 on Beulah Street and provides a full time fire engine and ambulance at Fire Station 37 on Telegraph Road. Fairfax County is a combination system where the volunteer fire departments support their communities with apparatus and additional trained personnel, and the County providing a full time, round the clock fire-fighting crew. Providing the Franconia and Kingstowne communities with top quality frontline firefighting equipment is extremely expensive and challenging. Only through the constant support of our membership can they continue to maintain a viable bingo fund raising program. Admin members perform a vital role in conducting all aspects of bingo administration, accounting and control. They have full membership in the Department and have opportunities to support the Fire Department in various logistical operations, administration and community relations. Members that contribute 240 hours of service per year are eligible for a free Fairfax County Car Tax Sticker for one privately owned vehicle. Dinner is always provided. Come any Wednesday or Saturday evening 6:00 to 11:00 p.m. or call 703-922-5858. Brian Mayberry, FVFD President or Gary Gaal, Assistant Chiefs are always available to give you the grand tour. Support your local fire department and earn the proud shirt of the FRANCONIA VFD. For more information visit their website at: http/, or
