Fund Drive Scam

PSA: Our fund drive is currently in progress and should be in your mailboxes soon if not already. We DO NOT solicit fund drive by phone and if you receive a call about a donation from an out of area phone number such as *484-281-1330*, it is not associated with Adamsburg and Community VFD and is a scam. We have been watching this continue across the area and it finally has hit ours. Please be aware that it is not us and is a SCAM.

9/11/01

Adamsburg and Community VFD would like to extend a heartfelt thank you and condolences to all the families and friends who lost a loved one on 9/11/01. We at the ACVFD would like to remind you to never forget the events on that day. These men and women did not think twice about risking their lives to help others and paid the ultimate price. For that we ask that you remember what they did and what your local Emergency Services will do for you. Posted are a few pictures that captured the events of that day. Below is a link to the names and companies of each of the 343 FDNY firefighters who lost their lives that day.

A prayer for the fallen

Fallen
Rest now my fallen brother
Lay soft your suffering back
Rest well and forever
Your memory shall not lack
Rest your tired hands
Wipe clean your weary brow
Rest with St. Florian
Your spirit now endowed
Rest here your breaking heart
We know you gave your all
Rest easy, you’ve done your part
You’ve answered your last call
Rest knowing that in god we sought
Oh lord, watch over another who just fell
Rest assured your troubled thought
As we ring the final bell.
