Recruitment and Retention Program January 24th LOSAP

A Length of Service Award Program presentation will be held on January 24th, 2023 at 6 PM at the Ray S. Burton Training Facility in Bethlehem NH.

LOSAP Flyer

This 1-hour program will provide an idea of how to use a LOSAP to help recruit and retain members in your Volunteer/Call organization.

Fire Departments, EMS squads, and SAT teams are encouraged to attend.

Problem:

  • More than 70% of emergency service recruits quit within five (5) years.
  • Close to 50% of those who stay, leave within 10 years.
  • For every 10 recruits, less than three (3) may stay with your organization after 10 years.

Solution:

A  defined benefit LOSAP is designed to provide tangible benefits to volunteers who commit time and energy to provide valuable emergency service to their community. The program rewards those volunteers who meet the criteria you (or as mandated by the state) establish. Benefits increase for each year of qualified service.

Who benefits from LOSAP:

  • Community – Establishing a LOSAP can provide significant savings to municipalities that are otherwise associated with paying salaries.
  • Emergency Service Organization – Establishing service requirements to qualify for benefits promotes a better-trained and managed team of volunteers.
  • Volunteers – Establishing a LOSAP offers rewards to volunteers for community service and encourages volunteer retention.

Please register at https://nhfa-ems.com/scheduled-course/retention-tool-length-of-service-award-program-losap/ and reserve your seat for the upcoming course on the retention tool called LOSAP.

REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN.

NVFC Webinar, Reaching through the screen with social media

NVFC Learning: Webinar – Reaching Through the Screen with Social Media

Social media is a cost-effective vehicle for fire departments to reach members, potential volunteers, and donors.

Fostering relationships and building trust over technology requires a simple, yet strategic approach. Join Dr. Candice McDonald as she highlights strategies for you to elevate your fire department’s brand, boost your recruitment efforts, and accelerate fundraising. This webinar is intended for the busy department member juggling multiple duties on a small budget.

NH Fallen Firefighters Memorial

To all members and all firefighters and families,

The NHSFA has put $30,000 into an upgrade to the memorial this year. 16 years ago many fire personnel from all over NH came together to build the memorial. Since then the NHSFA has been the keeper of the memorial. Recently many firefighters and Explorers came together on a very hot Saturday to move 22 years of mulch and update the memorial to get ready for September.

Please plan to attend Saturday, September 24 2022 to add a name to the memorial. This memorial belongs to all NH fire fighte3rs and fire families. Please show up in the uniform of your department. We are looking for HGU members and Pipes and Drums. Please contact us for more information.
