Essex Junction Firefighters Association

"Our mission is to support the Essex Junction Fire Dept and Charitable Causes."

Officers:

President: Stephen Gragg

Vice President: Dan Mullin

Treasurer: Richard Smith

Secretary: Jason Paul

Contact us: EJFA@essexjctfire.org

The Essex Junction Firefighters Association is 501(c)3 Non-Profit organization. Though mostly composed of Firefighters and Officers of the Department the Association is separate and you don't have to be a member to be in the Association.  We take upon ourselves to help purchase new equipment for the fire department in hopes to keep it out of the taxes of the community members. In the last few years the Association has helped through donations we have received to purchase new

  • 5 Gas Meters , which are used to detect gases like CO, the amount of oxygen in an area and the Lower explosive limit for combustable gases.
  • A New $10,000 dollar thermal imager for Engine 21. The thermal imager allows firefighters to detect heat, in a fire this allows for firefighters to find trapped victims through the black smoke around them, and also quickly find and extinguish the fire and can also be used to find lost, stranded or injured people at njight in wooded areas.
  • 3 New back up battery packs ($1600) for all computers and radio systems, in case of a loss of power the firedepartment stays operational even in the worst conditions. 
  • SCBA Fit Test Machine ($10,000) which is used by multiple departments throughout Chittenden and Grand Isle Counties.

The Essex Junction Firefighters Association also gives back to charities throughout the community. Our common contribution is 1 or 2 Scholarships for Graduating seniors for Essex High School. We understand the importance and the cost of college for new students and do what we can each year to help the students who have shown a commitment to academics and their community. We also host a visit from Santa each year, during this event we take pictures of the little ones and Santa and also have arts and crafts and other events for the families. We also use this time to do a little fire prevention education.

Also annually the EJFA hosts a Fire Fighter Banquet for firefighters and there loved ones, as well as a Chief's dinner around the Holiday Season . It is one of the tough jobs for the Association for us to show the loved ones who are left at home, the dinner table, or the gathering when the call comes in that they are just important to our family as the Firefighter, without there support the Association and the Fire Department would not be who we are.

The Association is paid for completely through fund raising and donations. Each year the Association hosts a barbecue outside our station after the Memorial Day Parade. We also have had boot drops and have had Murray's Tavern support us with pull cards at their business. We can not thank those who have supported us enough as you have allowed for the Association to keep providing for the Fire Department and the Community.

If you are interested in Donating to the Essex Junction Firefighters Association we will be available on Monday nights at 6:30pm at the department or mail to ATTN: Essex Junction Firefighters Association at 2 Lincoln Street, Essex Junction Vermont 05452. Please make all checks payable to "Essex Junction Firefighters Association"
