Chief Dennis Allen has been an active member of the Evans Center Volunteer Fire Company for almost 40 years, having served as a fire department officer for more than 30 years of his firefighting and EMS career.
Along with his wife Marlene and sons Scott and Marcus, this fire service leader has devoted his entire life to serving his community. After 36+ years of unselfish dedication to the fire department and the Town of Evans community, Dennis retired as an active firefighter in February 2008 due to being stricken with the deadly disease: idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis.
This site is dedicated to honoring Dennis and to promoting the efforts of his brother firefighters, friends and family in raising funds to offset the overwhelming medical and living expenses that are created by this illness and the surgery that will save his life.
A Celebration Benefit to honor Dennis's contributions to the fire service and the community is scheduled for September 6, 2008 at the Evans Center Volunteer Fire Company, 8298 Erie Road, Angola NY 14006.
Save the date. Please stop back often and support "Brotherhood in Action: The Dennis Allen Project."
