With fall now upon us and winter close behind I hope you all have had a great summer with your family and friends!

Please take the time to visit our legislation page on the IVFA website and stay current on the issues that we are working on to better the fire service. Also if someone in your department is not receiving their quarterly paper please have them contact their district chairman so that we can resolve any possible bad address issues.

If you haven't had the chance to visit our new website yet please check it out at: www.ivfa.org It has been totally redone in both its looks and functionality! Also just as a reminder if you would like to nominate someone for an state award or Bridgeport scholarship please get you letters and or applications into the central office or submit your nomination on our website before the deadlines.

I would like to thank you all! And as always if you should need anything please feel free to contact me at any time.

Paul Holcomb
President, IVFA
