President's Message

As President of the Nebraska State Volunteer Firefighters Association, it is a special honor and privilege to serve as president of this great association. The NSVFA is here for all First Responders.  We are working diligently to find new ways to grow. I am extremely honored to have this opportunity to build on the great foundation we have at the local, state and national levels.  As for my officers and me, we will remain a voice for all First Responders. We will continue to work with other organizations and our legislature to make positive changes for all First Responders.

Thank you for your support and service. Let's make this a great year!

Take care and be safe,
