The North Halifax Volunteer Fire Department held its annual Appreciation Supper on Saturday night as NHVFD members prepare to celebrate their 50th anniversary of service to the community.

A highlight of the Appreciation Supper, held at the fire station, was the presentation of a $23,000 check by the North Halifax Volunteer Fire Department’s Ladies Auxiliary. Cecil Fisher Hazelwood, treasurer of the auxiliary, handed the ceremonial check to NHVFD President Jon Hall. The money represents the fundraising haul from Auxiliary activities in 2013 — including the Turkey Luncheon in March, the Vera Bradley Bingo in April, the annual NHVFD Marathon in September, and the Christmas tree lighting in December.

It was a busy year for the department: reports show that NHVFD members answered 527 emergency service calls during the past year, including 42 fire calls and 19 public service calls.

Members devoted 4,574 man-hours to carrying out their duties and put 29,718 miles on the department’s fleet of trucks, which include three ambulances.

The department has six new members who joined during the year. The NHVFD has two new EMTs with three more members taking the EMT class.

The North Halifax Volunteer Fire Department, which was formed on March 10, 1964, will celebrate its 50th anniversary this year. Two charter members — Hugh Hendricks and L. C. Fisher, Jr. — are still on the department’s membership roll.

The Ladies Auxiliary, which was formed in 1972, currently has 45 active members who organize fund raising activities to support the department.
