Please keep your thoughts and prayers as they mourn the loss of Past Chief Charles Magann

It is unfortunate that we announce another passing within our department, Charles Magann. Charles was a Life Member and held many positions including, most notably, Chief up to March 2021. Charles loved the fire department and all it’s members. He also wanted and believed the department deserved only the best. We will never know, but we’re pretty sure he carried around at least $10 worth of quarters in his pocket at all times in case someone wanted a drink out of the machine in the bay. Charles will certainly be missed.

Wishing a very Merry Christmas and happy new year from all of us at the SVVFA to you and your family and friends! Stay safe!
