Spring Valley Fire Department  

Larry Ciardella, Assistant Chief at the Spring Valley Volunteer Fire Dept, also a Milpitas Chamber Board Member,  informs us of a huge recognition of the Volunteers.

In October 2020 The Spring Valley Volunteer Fire Dept was honored by the First Responders Children's Foundation located in New York City. The Fire Department received an ice making machine and eight Yeti ice chests to keep the fire fighters hydrated during an emergency.

The Foundation also honored  children  of the volunteer fire fighters with a large amount of toys and tennis shoes.

Spring Valley Fire Department Volunteers feel truly  honored to be the first fire dept on the West Coast to receive this recognition !!!!

The Foundation came in force with ten foundation members from all over the United States to do the presentation - WOW !!

The First Responders Children's Foundation was established after 911 to support the children of the first responders who gave their lives to the folks at the World Trade Center. The Foundation has given out college grants to the children of first responders.

Please note that the Foundation is also doing  "Female Fire Fighters Fridays" media campaign and Spring Valley Firefighters will be featured !!

The foundation is working on a show for ABC called “Localish” on Dec 19th  and one of our volunteers is one of the five finalist, keep your fingers crossed.

The Volunteer Fire Department Greatly Appreciates Your support at all times. The Department sends a huge heartfelt thanks to the First Responders Children's Foundation
