You have probably notices a change with the Zone Map. The boundaries have been updated to follow EMFS radio coverage and the SAFC zones.
This will result in a number of departments being listed in a different zone than they were in previous years. Rest assured, for those that prefer attending meetings in their previous zones there is no problem with this, just inform your zone rep.
This isn’t a change, it is a correction and update so the SAFC, EMFS, and SVFFA zones all follow the same borders.

Thank you ScotiaMcLeod Charitable Foundation for your generous donation to the SVFFA which will send fire departments that are in most need of training, that cannot easily afford training, to attend one of SVFFA's semi-annual fire schools. $1,500 will be granted twice per year, and will cover all costs associated with attending the school: school registration fees, mileage to and from the school as well as lodging during the weekend. ScotiaMcLeod Charitable Foundation's generous donation will allow for this scholarship program to run for five years!
The new 2019 SGI rate is $937.65.
