Believe it or not, our tax dollars do NOT cover all of the costs to run the Fair Lawn Volunteer Fire Department. Only a portion of your tax dollars help us. The rest of our operations are funded through donations.
Our firehouse is privately owned. Fair Lawn Fire Company #3 Inc. is responsible for the upkeep and day-to-day operations of the building. In 2000 we underwent a major building renovation in order to accommodate new and larger fire apparatus. Some of our expenses include heat, electricity, general maintenance and upkeep, and a mortgage for our renovation. Our tax dollars do not cover these expenses.
Fair Lawn Volunteer Fire Company #3 solicits residents and businesses within our district for donations to support our operation. We are recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) organization, so your donation may be tax deductible.
In addition to direct mail, Fire Company #3 hosts an annual golf outing and a cosmic bowling night to aid in our fund raising efforts.
Donations are accepted year round. If you would like to donate, please send your check or money order to:Fair Lawn Volunteer Fire Company #3 PO Box 2646 Fair Lawn, NJ 07410
We also accept donations by credit card. Click Here to print the credit card donation slip.
