With the demand for home sanitization growing your FBA has partnered with an additional company to help meet our members needs. Stepp’s Towing has been working diligently with the FBA to help our members get their homes back to baseline before their families rejoin them after finally having two negative CIVID 19 tests. This is a very strange and taxing time for everyone; please watch out for your brothers and sisters on and off the job. Your Firefighter’s Benevolent Association will be here for you anyway we can.
