MVFC Press Release
Oct 22, 2014 - Marydel Volunteer Fire Company 110 Firehouse Ln. Marydel DE 19964 Phone: (302) 492-9917 Fax: (302) 492- 8908

To all persons in the Marydel fire district and surrounding communities, Recently the Marydel Volunteer Fire Company Inc. underwent a review from the State of Delaware, Office of Auditor of Accounts. Through this review there were some discrepancies with thier findings. Members have been utilizing plans set for years that are out dated. The Marydel Volunteer Fire Company Inc. has been made aware of updates to policies and procedures that need to be corrected and we will be implementing them while making corrective actions. As stated in the audit performed by the Office of Auditor of Accounts, The MVFC did purchase rings to award members as they reached milestones in their career with the department. This is a one-time large expense and an annual minimum expense. The Board of Directors put this in place to help keep members active with the high manpower demands of the fire service. The Marydel Volunteer Fire Company Inc. utilizes 1st Due BBQ for numerous functions and does not feel there is any wrongful doing between the Fire Chief, Treasurer, and 1st Due BBQ. The Marydel Volunteer Fire Company is working with the Delaware Volunteer Firefighters Association to ensure operations and accounts are following all guidelines and obligations. The Marydel Volunteer Fire Company will continue to strive to improve our overall system. An outside accountant will be hired to handle and oversee the funds of the company. We want to ensure our community that we will continue to provide the very best fire, rescue, and EMS service to the citizens. The Marydel Volunteer Fire Inc. intends to learn from this and move forward in a positive direction.

Respectfully Submitted,

Jason R. Mills, Secretary
