The Stuart Volunteer Fire Department is celebrating its 104 years of serving the community with an expanded service area, the move to a new location later this year and reflective signs that will help emergency personnel easily find homes.
The department has 911 signs (reflective address signs) for sale a nominal $25 fee. Anyone in the county may purchase a sign by visiting the Town Office. In most cases, the signs can be ordered, made and ready for pickup the same day, officials said.
The signs are visible at night, which helps fire and emergency medical services personnel find homes faster, officials said.
The department’s annual fundraising campaign also is underway, and donations are welcome.
“We always are looking for additional men and women who want to serve their community. If you’ve ever felt a call to make your community a better place, volunteering with us provides a variety of ways to do that; we’re not just firefighters,” officials said.
Members of the department meet on Thursdays at 7 p.m. For more information, call (276) 694-7330 or stop by the town offices.
