Cumberland Fire Chief Nick Anderson recognized by Cumberland Firefighters Local 2722 of the IAFF

Cumberland Fire Chief Nick Anderson was recently recognized by Cumberland Firefighters Local 2722 for his many years of service, prior to taking the promotion to Chief. He began his career over 20 years ago at the former Cumberland Hill Fire Department, where he was a member of Local 2762 of the IAFF. After merging the four Cumberland fire districts into one entity in 2014, now known as the Cumberland Fire District, he then became a member of Local 2722, of which his father, Wendall Anderson, was a charter member serving the North Cumberland Fire District.

Chief Anderson was presented a certificate and a plaque recognizing his 21 years of service. Local 2722 executive board member, Fire Marshal Jason Lavallee, made the presentation in front of a large group of current and retired members after a meeting and holiday get together.

Donations requested for RIAFC PAC fund

The RIAFC Political Action Committee (PAC) is requesting the support of our members who feel that our PAC is a needed and vital part of our legislative activities at the RI General Assembly.

Due to strict regulations regarding donations to a PAC, and how these donations are reported, we are no longer allowed to donate proceeds from a monthly 50/50 raffle to our PAC.  Nevertheless, because of the importance to our organization of continuing to participate in the political process, it is necessary that we continue to fund our PAC through your contributions.

RI election laws stipulate that “contributions of funds may be made by check, money order, or credit or debit card and may be made over the internet and via electronic payment systems”, and when the amount of a donation made by an individual is $100 or less over the course of a year, a record of the name, address, and place of employment of the donor must be maintained by the PAC but is not reported to the board of elections, maintaining your privacy. 

Keeping this in mind, we want to keep the process of donating to our PAC as simple as possible.  Donations of $100 or less, made with a credit card through our online payment method will meet the above criteria.  Simply filling out the form below, and choosing one of the six donation levels provided,($10, $15, $25, $50, $75, $100) and paying with your credit/debit card, you can be a supporter of our PAC as we move forward with our legislative agenda.

We hope that you consider a donation to our PAC at the level that suites you best. We realize and understand that a lower level of support may be more in line with your personal preference.

As always, feel free to reach out to RIAFC executive director Rick Susi with any questions or concerns. 401-692-0795 or rifirechiefs@gmail.com
