Mission Statement

The Friendship Veterans Fire Engine Association assists in the preservation of the historic fire engine house on Alfred Street in Alexandria, Virginia; supports the Alexandria Fire Department; and provides scholarships, and other benevolent and philanthropic services to the Alexandria Community. The Association promotes civic involvement, honors the legacy of its 18th-century founders--dedicated citizen firefighters--and values the contributions of our present-day first responders.
