Kismet Fire Department Auxiliary

The Kismet Fire Department Auxiliary (KFDA) is comprised of homeowners and long-term renters of the Kismet community. Our mission is to help support the Kismet Fire Department (KFD) in keeping it safe. We accomplish this by holding various fundraising activities throughout the year.

We currently are selling a 2020 Kismet Map, designed by Jim Phelan. It lists the names of Kismet homes and businesses.

We have an annual Plant Sale on the Friday and Saturday of Memorial Day weekend, until we sell out.

We have monthly raffle basket sales throughout the season & during the year when possible. These are a lot of fun and sought after.

During July and August, we have weekly family and adult BINGO nights.

We are always looking at new ways to fund and fun raise.
KFDA members participate in the Annual Kismet 4th of July Parade.
