We are excited to announce the launching of The Firefighter, a quarterly magazine produced by PFFPNC.

West is everything from western North Carolina to Greensboro down through Charlotte. Also, please visit and support our sponsors as they are what keep The Firefighter free!
Here is a look at some of the safety programs we continue to work on:
Coats for Kids: This provides brand new winter coats to underprivileged children in our community.
Free Smoke Detectors: Our Fire fighters distribute and install hundreds of free smoke detectors year round. This is for needy families who otherwise would not be able to afford them!!!
Fire Fighters Burn Foundation: In addition to funding burn research, treatment, and rehabilitation, this foundation also sponsors young burn survivors who attend special burn camps with their peers. At these camps, kids can be kids without the EMBARRASSMENT of their burn injuries.
Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA): MDA'S mission is to assist people living with muscular dystrophy and support research to eradicate 40 neuromuscular diseases. Leland Fire Fighters Association is also devoted to helping MDA by conducting fill-the-boot drives, assisting with the MDA Lock-UP, and sending it's members to MDA Summer camps.
The firefighters work on these programs while off duty and do not receive payment. Their goal is to cut down on the accidents and deaths caused by fire. Perhaps with your support, they will achieve this goal.
