Volunteer Firefighters’ Relief Association (VFRA) Management Guidelines
These guidelines aim to provide your Volunteer Fire Relief Associations (VFRAs), which often work alongside local fire departments, with updated information about recent policy shifts in VFRA management and state aid. We trust that this resource will be invaluable as you continue your mission to support those who dedicate themselves to our communities.
This manual is meticulously crafted to simplify the complexities of VFRA administration, allowing you to direct your energy towards your core responsibility: ensuring the safety of your neighbors and neighborhoods.
The recommendations outlined in this manual are intended to assist VFRA officers in adhering to state regulations that oversee relief association operations and the management of state aid funds. By grasping the legal requisites prior to making decisions, you can minimize the likelihood of audit-related issues emerging in subsequent evaluations.
