These “West Virginia Dad’s” caught some National attention. It reminds me of spending some time with my daughter tonight when I get home. Not sure if you have seen Matt Lauer’s fatherhood PSA, but this is a behind the scenes look into it – featuring some local fathers.

With the coming of a new year, a few changes have come along as well. Once such change that our clients, members, and friends need to be made aware of is that effective immediately, Fargo Insurance Group will no longer offer regular business hours on Saturday mornings. Our staff has been instructed to use these Saturday morning hours to provide on an appointment basis for what is needed by one of our customers. With that said, please feel free to schedule an appointment with a member of our staff as needed on a Saturday.
All of our offices will be open Monday through Friday from 8:30am until 5:30pm. Also, please feel free to utilize our Virtual Insurance Office at any time.
We look forward to serving you throughout the new year, and for many years to come!
Chief Operations Officer
Shepherdstown, WV. - The Shepherdstown Fire Department (SFD) is thrilled to announce the dedication and placement into service of their new Engine 3 (pictured). For two years the members of the Shepherdstown Fire Department have been planning and establishing the necessities to become a reality on this new Engine. Everything from the size of the water tank, to the placement of the flashlights has been a priority throughout the planning process. On December 16th, 2012 at 1pm the vision will become a reality as the members of the SFD will formally remove from service our 1989 Pierce Dash Engine, and replace it with our 2012 Pierce Velocity Engine. The ceremony will last approximately one hour and will include the formal removal of old Engine 3 and the formal wash and push in of new Engine 3. The surrounding community, mutual aid departments, and media outlets are strongly encouraged to attend this ceremony.
The new Engine 3 has a 500 horse power motor with a 2,000 gallon per minute water pump and a tank that holds 750 gallons of water. She carries about 3,000 feet of fire hose, three ladders, and can transport six(6) firemen to the scene of an emergency in her state-of-the-art cabin. Fire hoses can be deployed from all four sides, and with seven(7) compartments, tools are efficiently stored. Designed with low hose beds and cross lays, this allows for quick, easy, aggressive deployment. Built as a firefighter friendly engine, we look forward to many years of service to the community with this fire engine.
Fargo Insurance Group is proud to support the fine men and women of the Shepherdstown Fire Department.

It’s that time of the year again. Fargo Insurance Group, Inc. is proud to host it’s Third Annual Bras For A Cause for the entire month of October 2012. In 2010 Fargo Insurance Group (FIG), recognized an opportunity for us to have a creative impact on funding the fight against cancer. Since the inception of Bras For a Cause, Fargo Insurance Group has donated more than $5,000 to cancer research. It is our hope that the 3rd Annual event will be the largest success yet.
How does it work?
Just drop of your bras at any of our location. Bras are accepted at any of the 5 local Fargo Insurance locations (Martinsburg, Ranson, Hedgesville, Inwood, Annandale). Drop your bras off and while your there enter to win multiple prizes. For each bra donated to the cause FIG will donate $.50 to a local organization in an effort to support the research on finding a cure for this disease. In 2010, the money was donated to Susan G. Komen. In 2011, the money was donated to Jefferson, Berkeley and Shepherd University Relay for Life events.
What happens to the bras?
The bras donated can be of any condition. The bras in moderate to excellent condition will be donated to a local women shelter. The bras in poor condition are disposed of appropriately.
How many bras do you want?
This year, for the first time, FIG will be tracking bra donations throughout the month (previously, they were tallied at the end). We have set a goal of 1,000 bras. You can follow the communities success at our Facebook Page.
