Proudly serving our community since 1975

In Memory:

Jay Gottlieb

50 years old FVAC, passed away on July 8, 2008, after an extended illness. He served his community and FVAC with distinction for 31 years as a Dispatcher, Driver, Attendant and Crew Chief. Jay also served as a past Captain, Safety Officer and on the Board of Directors. He will be fondly remembered for his quick wit, his love for his family and his steadfast dedication to FVAC. Rest in Peace.

Bob Stonehill

Bob was a founding and charter member of FVAC. During his 29 year tenure, he served in nearly every officership at various points; his dedication to the corps and its members never faltered. His sudden passing at 57 from an apparent heart attack came as a great shock to all. He was First Lieutenant at the time and was involved in corps business while at home. He is sorely missed by all for his warmth, wit, wisdom, and wisecracking.
