President's Message

           As President of the Nebraska State Volunteer Firefighters Association, it is my hope that you come to find the NSVFA as a voice for the volunteer firefighters/EMS across this great state. I personally feel it is the goal of not only myself, but of this association, as a group to make things better for the volunteers across the state. The NSVFA is also a voice for Nebraska’s firefighters on the national level through our efforts with the National Volunteer Fire Council. I can speak for myself, as well as for my officers, we work hard every day to make this association great for our members and to be their voice. We work hand in hand with the other organizations, our state legislator and government, to make a difference for all EMS and firefighters in this great state we call home.

Thank You for your service, God Bless and please Stay Safe
