The Fort McKavett Volunteer Fire Department does not receive any funds from the county or the state. We hold a fundraiser once a year to obtain the money for truck repairs, fuel, equipment and capital improvements. Please join us on June 9th for our 18th annual BBQ cook-off and fundraiser.
Music this year will be provided by the Concho Grass Band. Our noon BBQ will feature brisket, goat, chicken, sausage, beans, potato salad, and all the fixings. The food is outstanding and you won't go home hungry. Please remember to help provide for our department's budget when you make your donation for the noon meal.
Auction Time, Auction Time... We will have both a silent auction and a live auction. Some of the items that will be available for bid are a Ruger - American 6.5 Creedmoor Predator rifle (specs), a Panther Arms AR-15 style rifle , a T.V. a tub spa set, jewelry, household items, baked goods, and a whirlygig. Many items are still being donated. We have fixed our public address system and there will be no repeat of the sound system troubles we experienced last year.
This year's raffle has been expanded! We will have five possible prizes for you to win instead of the three from past years. Top prize is a $1,000 in Visa gift cards. Followed by a Henry Golden Boy 22 rifle (specs). Next is a Ruger bolt action 204 caliber rifle (specs). Fourth prize is a $250 HEB gift card. Fifth prize is a $100 Lowes Grocery gift card.

Our fire chief Terry Mazac has recruited a great group of fire fighters. We are currently being considered for an updated 2 1/2 ton truck from the Texas Forestry Service. Once we get our new truck, we will need to get lights, siren, paint, and equipment. Our fund raiser will help pay for all that.
