a member of one of the finest emergency services organizations in the

to pick up an application package.
The PVFD is a
primarily volunteer fire department. We feel that we are an elite
organization with goals, policies, performance and a philosophy, which
is a “cut” above other volunteer fire departments. You must evaluate
your commitment to this organization as being one of dedication and
performance before acceptance to our organization.
Are you joining for
the “fun” of it? Do you just need “something to do”? Are you joining
just to be around your friends? Is this just a “whim”? IF you answered
yes to any of these, you should give more thought prior to filling out
This department has
rules, regulations, policies and procedures, which you MUST
follow. This is not a social club. When the alarm rings, you
must be thoroughly committed to performing the tasks assigned and
required – our citizens deserve nothing less. You cannot perform
properly if you have not attended the training sessions.
Firefighting is not a game. It requires your total dedication to
save lives and protect against the loss of property.
To be a member you MUST: follow the rules; attend
meetings and training sessions; attend special training sessions and
seminars; be available when you are in district; participate in
clean-ups; work on special maintenance projects; and, most importantly,
respond to all emergency calls you are called to.
You will need
to attend our recruit class at no cost to you, and you will go through a
probationary period. When you are called for a response, you are
there to observe. If you complete probation satisfactorily, you
are still considered a candidate. In other words, no firefighting
(structures) until you have had specialized training.
We wish for you to
join the PVFD, but we require your dedication. If you can do all of the
above, welcome! If you feel you cannot, no problem, don’t submit the
application. We guarantee that you will feel special for helping your
neighbors. We will provide training, motivation, protective gear and
insurance. You provide your personal commitment to excellence.
