I’m am writing to inform you that I have stepped aside as the President as of 05/20/2020. It was my honor to serve as a Director, VP, and President of this great Association for many years. I will, of course, continue to keep you informed and updated as things move along in the state dealing with Firefighters’ health and safety.
Vice President Al Drake will be assuming all my duties and responsibilities for the remainder of my term.
Please be assured that I did not make this decision lightly and will be serving you in the future in a different role.
To all the members of the Nevada State Firefighter Association, it is with a heavy heart I inform you that we have lost a true American hero today. Past President Sgt. Ben Jenkins was gunned down in the line of duty this morning during an attempt to assist a motorist. Some of you may have known him as a volunteer firefighter, director, president and Past President of our board, but he was also a state trooper with the Nevada Highway Patrol, as well as a veteran of our armed forces, he was a true public servant.
Ben was involved in the great outdoors and enjoyed helping handicapped individuals by taking them on hunting trips among other activities. He really loved and was passionate about his hunting, fishing, boating, camping and
spending time with friends and friends.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to his wife, children, grandchildren & family during this unimaginable time.
You will be in our thoughts and part of our story forever Ben.
Rest In Peace my friend
Nevada State Firefighters Association
The upcoming fire conference in Jean NV, June 24th-27th, 2020 will be canceled until to further notice
Please be assured we did not make this decision lightly, as you may have seen the Governor of Nevada released a statement yesterday limiting gatherings and closing all Casinos in Nevada. In this unprecedented time, we have a responsibility to keep our members, Board and their family safe. We will, of course, continue to keep you informed and updated as we receive more information. We appreciate your patience. In the meantime, if you have any questions please contact us using our online contact form.
Just a quick reminder of the upcoming fire conference in Jean, NV, June 24th-27th .
Mark your calendars and get ready as more info will be coming out soon on how to sign up and the training that will be offered. But I do say, it’s going to be one of the most informative fire training conferences ever put on by the NSFA. Also, just FYI, this is going to be a family event as well as a training conference so come one come all young and old.
