the project

The Branchport Keuka Park Volunteer Fire Department is now beginning its Annual Fund Drive. Your support plays a vital role in the ongoing efforts of our firefighters, medics and dive team to be there for you in times of need. While allocations from taxes cover a percentage of our expenses, we still rely on donations to keep up with the demands of operating a modern emergency-services organization.

the steps

We are an all-volunteer organization. The funds we raise will be used for volunteer retention and department services.

In 2020, we used funds to purchase a new inflatable boat to more effectively serve our lakefront community by responding to emergencies on the water.

This coming year, we will complete the process of updating our air packs and finalizing the plans for a new rescue truck that will improve our abilities when responding to fires and motor vehicle accidents.

why we're doing it

In New York state, 90 percent of the fire departments are made up entirely of volunteers. Nationwide, the number is 70 percent. Which means when you need help, the people taking care of you and your loved ones are there out of a sense of duty. We spend countless hours training for incidents big and small. This training and the quality of equipment at our disposal is essential to providing fast, reliable service when you and the community needs us most.

Your support makes a difference.
