Our Services Make Your Life Safe and Secure

While we are a volunteer fire department, we do much more than fight fires! We are an “all hazards” response department that is called to all types of emergencies… Fires – Car Crashes – Water Rescue and General Water Emergencies – Carbon Monoxide Alarms and Medical Emergencies.

Fire Suppression

Our core mission is fire suppression and we regularly train to maintain a high degree of preparedness for this core function.

Rescue Operations

We are equipped with Holmatro “Jaws of Life” extrication tools and respond to car crashes and rescue people who are entrapped. Members train with a variety of rescue tools for lifting objects, cutting devices and stabilization tools.

Emergency Medical Response

All Verdoy Firefighters are trained in CPR and are equipped with an AED and basic emergency response equipment. Many of our members are also trained as Emergency Medical Technicians.

Hazardous Materials Response

All firefighters are trained to the Hazardous Materials Operations level and respond with our Town Haz-Mat team hazardous materials incidents

While most cities have career firefighters, most communities in the USA are served by VOLUNTEERS. That’s why we need you! Come over to our fire station and check us out!
