MVFD Votes to Cease Providing Services
On 6/18/18, the members of the Morris Volunteer Fire Department, Inc. (MVFD) voted to cease providing fire, rescue, and EMS services for the Town of Morris effective June 30, 2018. The MVFD members also voted to establish an irrevocable trust for the benefit of Morris residents.
These decisions did not come lightly, but after several years of trying to forge a reasonable working relationship with the Town administrators.
The MVFD has tirelessly provided fire, rescue, and EMS services for the Town of Morris for over 75 years. We have risked our lives and livelihoods, as well as devoted countless hours to helping our fellow citizens in times of need. Never in our history have we encountered such a toxic working relationship with our Town officials and so little respect for the immeasurable VOLUNTEER work performed.
We’re sure that there will be much negative publicity around our departure, but we can hold our heads high knowing that we gave tirelessly of ourselves for the betterment of our community. Our hope is that more citizens will take an active interest in holding our Town officials accountable for this unfortunate outcome.
