Capwiz is a grassroots advocacy tool that makes it easy for you to communicate with your U.S. and State Representatives and Senators. Through Capwiz, the National Volunteer Fire Council and the Vermont State Firefighters Association posts draft letters to elected officials and federal agencies that members can use to send to their elected officials simply by entering their contact information and clicking send.
