‘Charlotte’s Station’ is a future project of the BQVFD

Named after firefighter Megan Warfield’s daughter, Charlotte, “Charlotte’s Station” is the name of a future child care center for the BQVFD. The fire department relies heavily on volunteers. And, they realize the more they care for the families of the volunteers, the more volunteers they’re able to retain.

“If our volunteers are making their family top priority, then our station will make their family our top priority as well. Imagine a children’s place within a fire station where a credentialed child care worker can supervise a volunteer’s children during training, drills, and duty hours. We could keep our volunteers in a position to continue to serve, long after they would have normally turned in their uniforms.
