The Lexington Volunteer Fire Department would like to thank all the businesses and individuals that have participated in our annual fund drive. Each year the Lexington Volunteer Fire Department has their annual fund drive that begins in November and runs through the end of December. This is the only time that we ask for any donations. With these donations we have been able to purchase extra equipment for the department. We also use the donations to purchase outer wear for the firemen that identifies us at calls. We are grateful for all the support that the community gives to our department. Without this support we couldn’t provide the professional service that is provided to the citizens in our fire district. We want to wish everyone a Safe and Happy Holiday Season. LVFD.
