AMBULANCE MEMORIAL FUND
The AFD Ambulance Memorial Fund is an account which has been in place for over 45 years to collect funds designated to be used exclusively for items needed for the enhancement of the Emergency Medical Services Division. Please make checks payable to the City of Annapolis and reference “Ambulance Memorial Fund.”
E. S. GARNETT FIREMEN’S WELFARE FUND
In the 1920’s the AFD sent assistance to a fire in a trailer park on Saint George Barber Road where they did not have fire stations. They saved a trailer belonging to the Garnett family and they never forgot it; so when Mrs. Garnett passed away in 1966 her attorney called to tell Fire Chief Charles H. Steele that she had left a bequeathal to the firefighters. The bank account was opened by her estate over forty years ago and the money has continued to be used for the welfare of the firefighters who spend 24 hours in the stations, 365 days a year. To donate to this fund, please make checks payable to E. S. Garnett Firemen’s Welfare Fund.
SMOKE DETECTOR FUND
At one time the AFD was able to get smoke detectors donated for those who needed them, but about ten years ago that was no longer possible and there was no budget funding available, so we had to find a way to raise funds to continue this program. As needed we use this money to go out and buy smoke detectors which are given to citizens who live in the City of Annapolis and demonstrate a lack of ability to purchase one themselves. These are inexpensive items which clearly save lives and protect people. To donate to this fund, the check should be made out to the Annapolis Professional Firefighters Local #1926 and insert in the memo section a notation for the Smoke Detector Fund.
