Constitution & Bylaws

The Volunteer Fire Departments function under a common constitution (PDF) and largely similar bylaws (PDF). They are autonomous Nevada nonprofit corporations in and of themselves and maintain their own identity. They each have their own identifying patch and logos, yet function within a common environment under the auspices of the Storey County Fire Protection District.

Equipment Provisions

Storey County Fire Protection District provides for all of the apparatus (fire trucks) and specialized equipment needed to make each station fully functional. The volunteer fire department often purchases various types of equipment through fundraising efforts they put on.

Special events within the county, such as car and motorcycle races, provide opportunities for the VFD to earn a few dollars for their own treasuries.
