The Wethersfield Volunteer Firefighters Association was formed to promote the preserve the rich heritage and friendships that are formed while members of the Wethersfield Volunteer Fire Department serve their community.  The WVFA is a benevolent organization that supports it's members and their families.  Comprised of current and Associate Member (retired) firefighters, our membership ranges from the newest members of the fire department to some with ties to the fire department going back 60 years.  We award college scholarships each year to members or their children as well as support events in our town like WHS Safe Graduation and The Keane Foundation.  We meet quarterly and hold several social events each year to raise funds for the Association.  Donations to the WVFA or our Scholarship Fund are gratefully accepted.
