I am a firm believer that the true test of a community comes through in its resilience to tough times and through those who believe in the community enough to step into those roles that allow us to carry on in both the good times and the tough times. To each of you who has freely chosen to place your name on the Yarmouth Fire Department Auxiliary membership role, you have shown both leadership and community spirit. In doing your part, you play a vital role in allowing our community not only to survive, but to thrive. Please know that your time and commitment spent working towards the Auxiliary’s mission does not go unnoticed and is most certainly appreciated by this Council and by the citizens of the Town of Yarmouth and surrounding communities. You are a true testament to the meaning of community. We are in this together, and it’s a pleasure to serve our Town and area together. Thank you for all you do.
“Safe-guarding the citizens of the Town of Yarmouth, and its surrounding communities, through actively supporting the Yarmouth Fire Department in its endeavor to educate those citizens on the hazards of fire and limiting the effects of fire.”
