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.

Our 2022 membership packets have been mailed out. Just a reminder that the membership dues and Charity Fund dues can be paid with one check. At the June 2021 Convention Meeting Delegates voted to change the Charity Fund dues date to January 1st, 2022 which now matches the regular membership dues date. The grace period now runs from January 1st. to February 1st. of each year for the fund. The Officers of the Association thank all of our Department and Associate Members for their continued support.
