Protecting Lives and Property Since 1885
BURN SEASON IS OPEN
Newport Fire Department serves the citizens of the City of Newport, the Newport Rural Fire Protection District, and our visitors and guests. NFD consists of 12 career staff and over 30 volunteer firefighters. Services we provide include fire suppression, fire prevention, emergency medical services, rescues, and mutual aid to surrounding communities.
5th Annual Newport Firefighter’s Toy Drive
This year marks the 5th annual toy drive put on by the firefighters of Newport. The generosity of our community has enabled the annual toy drive to help hundreds of Newport families over the past years. It means that even if it’s a tough year for mom and dad, the children will never know on Christmas morning.
Once again we will be accepting new, unwrapped presents for distribution. Families come to the fire station to fill out a small form to indicate the age and sex of the child, and what kind of interests they have. We then match the gifts as closely as possible to that information, and place all the family’s gifts in a black plastic bag so the kids can’t see what’s in it. The parents can then wrap and label the gifts.
This year’s collection sites will be Fire Station 3200, City Hall, and the Newport Public Library. In addition the trucks will be out in force to collect toys on Black Friday.
