Frequently Asked Questions
The Newport Fire Volunteer Association is actually made up of members from both the 31 volunteer firefighters as well as the 11 paid firefighter staff. The age of our members range from late teens to late 60’s and we have a huge variety of backgrounds and life experiences to draw from.
The association meets once a month and we end our meeting with a dinner which has been prepared by our members; of course we do fall back on the occasional pizza party. The association is involved in many community activities. These include the Muscular Dystrophy Association Fill the Boot campaign, our annual holiday season Toy Drive, and the 4th of July fireworks. We participate in the Loyalty Days parade, as well as the Seafood & Wine Fest and we are called upon to provide services at various events such as the annual Newport Marathon, Coast Hills Classic, and Grad Night.
The Newport Fire Volunteer Association holds a 501c3 non-profit status and as such we do have access to funds that we can allocate to different programs, people and the procuring of equipment. We run the association meetings using a version of Robert’s Rules of Order, so all decisions are discussed and voted on.
Being a part of the Newport Fire Department is not all about putting out fires. It is a way to give back to the community.
