The Replacement of Marine Unit 269 Needs Your Help!

Since its founding in 1936, the North Point-Edgemere Volunteer Fire Department has provided fire, rescue, and EMS service.  In 1986, our first and current Marine Unit, MU269, was purchased and has been in service for over 28 years. Unfortunately, due to normal wear and tear, the service life of this boat is nearing its end.  North Point-Edgemere VFD is currently in the process of designing it's replacement.  The new boat will be approximately 22 feet long, compared to our current 18 foot boat.  This boat will provide a better service during year round emergencies and will provide better crew and patient protection.  The boat's design will include a large capacity fire pump, state of the art electronics, and much more.  However, in order to bring the best service to the over 175 miles of coast line and surrounding areas, we need your help.  Your contributions would help us continue to provide this valuable service.  Please go to our Fundly™ page by clicking the link below to make a donation.  Thank you for your continued support to the men and women of our Volunteer Fire Department.
