Help Us to Help You
There are a number of ways in which you can help the members of the Momence Fire Protection District to do a better job in serving you, the Momence community. While monetary donations are very helpful and greatly appreciated, they are not the only way for you to show that you care and want to make a difference.
Are you interested in doing your part to better the Momence community?
Check out the following list of ways that you can give back:
Become a Volunteer Firefighter
Don't let your free time and unused talents go to waste- volunteer as a member of the Momence Fire Protection District! Our department operates 100% on volunteer, paid-on-call members who are dedicated to serving the community in which they live.
Being a firefighter isn't just about running into burning buildings; we offer a number of opportunities for interested individuals of all ages, backgrounds, and skill-sets. Even if you aren't sure that the fire service is the place for you, why not at least give it a try?
Support Training and Public Education
Some of the best help that you can give as a community member is simply being supportive of your local firefighters and the causes that they stand for. Whether this means supporting training programs, helping to promote public education opportunities, or simply saying "Thank You," we at the Momence Fire Protection District appreciate your continued support.
Financially Contribute to the
Momence Firefighter's Association
And of course, if you have the means to do so, we wholeheartedly appreciate monetary donations to supplement the taxpayer funded Momence Fire Protection District's budget. Your tax-deductible donation of any amount to the Momence Firefighter's Association is put before a voting quorum of firefighters who allocate funds towards equipment that improves not only firefighter safety, but also public safety.
