The 2022 Registration Packets will be mailed out. Please remember that the association has adopted the one check system when paying your regular membership dues and charity fund dues. 85% of the current membership elected to pay with one check. All checks can be made out to the NOVFA. On the registration cards there is a box for "State ID" number. This number is assigned by the State of Ohio Fire Marshal's Office. The state ID numbers are available in the link below. Industrial Fire Brigades are not assigned a number. We also have a number of Michigan Fire Departments that are members. If you know your Michigan ID number, please list it on the registration card. The Officers of the NOVFA would like to thank all department and associate members for their continued support.

Northwestern Ohio Volunteer Firemen's Association

President Eric Arquette and the officers of the association would like to welcome you to our association. The association was founded in 1874 at Ada, Ohio. Article I of the Constitution and By-Laws of the association states that: "The object of this association shall be to create and maintain a brotherly and fraternal feeling by banding together such volunteer, part-paid, paid firefighters as may be carried on the rolls of fire companies or fire departments, to work for the education of its members in the advancement of their chosen duty of firefighting, fire prevention and rescue work; to hold a Conference annually for the promotion of friendship among the members; and to seek protection for fighters and their dependents through adequate legislation."  Please feel free to e-mail us for information about our association. Members and Associate Members, please feel free to send us information on your department or business or events. We will gladly post them on our site.
