Dear Friends and Neighbors,


The Callao Volunteer Fire Department has proudly served our community since 1948.  Since its meager beginning, the Department has grown from a one fire engine company with a handful of volunteers, to a modern, state of the art organization with a membership of more than 80 volunteers, and a fleet of seven fire and emergency response units.


In 2011, CVFD was dispatched to 227 emergency calls.  In addition to emergency calls, members spent hundreds of hours training, attending community events, and conducting fire prevention programs.


The cost of maintaining equipment, fire fighting apparatus, and training continue to rise.  The Department’s budget is partially funded by state and local funds.  The remainder of the budget is dependent upon fundraising events and contributions from the public.


Your tax deductible donation will enable us to continue to provide a high quality service to the residents and land owners of our community.  Your continued support is greatly appreciated.






Chris Neale,
