The 2020 Registration Packets have been mailed out. Please remember that the association has adopted the one check system when paying your regular membership dues and charity fund dues. 85% of the current membership elected to pay with one check. All checks can be made out to the NOVFA. On the registration cards there is a box for "State ID" number. This number is assigned by the State of Ohio Fire Marshal's Office. The state id numbers are available in the link below. Industrial Fire Brigades are not assigned a number. We also have a number of Michigan Fire Departments that are members. If you know your Michigan ID number, please list it on the registration card. The Officers of the NOVFA would like to thank all department and associate members for their continued support.
