Fort McKavett Volunteer Fire Department and Community Center
Our department has no paid employees, only volunteers and they are very good at what they do.
Our fire fighters are a vital part of our department.
They risk their lives responding to grass/brush fires, vehicle accidents, swift water rescues, traffic control, and standing over watch during prescribed burns
They care for and maintain our trucks and equipment
As a fire fighter you will be expected to attend training sessions
You will be encouraged to attend our monthly meeting. Input from our fire fighters will help the members make sound decisions
You will be expected to help out with our Annual Fundraiser held on the second Saturday in June.
We have a great fire chief that is working very hard at improving our department. This includes enlisting new firefighters. Want to become a firefighter? E-mail Terry Mazac at email@example.com.
Our Volunteer Firefighters are not the only volunteers that are needed. We are looking for new members of our organization. It is the membership that, along with the Executive Board, makes decisions on the operations and expenditures of both the fire department and the community center. Our by-laws call for membership dues of $10 per person to be in good standing. Members in good standing can cast a vote on the issues presented at the monthly meetings and for the election of officers in November, and become a member of the Board of Directors. We have several standing committees that can always use some additional members.
To become a member, attend one of our meetings and pay your dues. We have meetings on the second Monday of the every month except August and December. We usually take a break in August and have a Christmas party in December.
We also need volunteers to assist with our June fund raiser. You don't need to be a member of the department or a firefighter to volunteer. To volunteer for one of the tasks below e-mail Lisa Lester at firstname.lastname@example.org.
