Shop with a First Responder

Shop With A First Responder

In 2017, Wilderness VFD Firefighter/EMT, Noah Allen initiated the Shop With A First Responder program in Nicholas County. Shop with a First Responder helps local children who are in need to enjoy their Christmas. Uniformed First Responders accompany these children on a Christmas shopping experience that is paid for through donations from local individuals and businesses. In 2018, over 100 children participated and over 40 First Responders from the following agencies volunteered for the event:

CBC Fire Department

Fire Safety

As firefighters, fire safety is one of our number one priorities. We take pride in visiting local schools and hosting in- and out-of-house events to promote fire safety in our community and beyond!

Back to School Bash

Annual Back-To-School Bash

In 2018, we hosted our first ever Back-To-School Bash! Area children were provided basic school supplies, and were able to participate in games and learning activities set up by our members and other area organizations.  Children were given a chance to participate in the West Virginia Fire Association's annual Fire Safety Calendar picture contest. Cotton candy and popcorn were also available.
