I need to burn a pile of leaves, ditch, or other things on my property. Can I get the fire department to help me?
YES! We’re happy to come out and help you stay safe while burning — or even burn it for you so that you don’t have to. Contact us with the details of what you need to burn and we’ll get back to you right away.
VFD responds to well over 250 calls per year, and 70% of those are medical. We have 13 licensed EMTs, 3 licensed paramedics, and an ambulance with a Quick Response Unit, or QRU. Our EMS personnel respond to medical calls 24 hours a day, 365 days a year on a volunteer basis — and sometimes to several of them in one day. While the summers and early autumn is often busy with wildland fire, the other seasons are just as busy. VFD handles not just calls from in town, but a large surrounding area as well.
The members of Victor Fire are not paid at all. As volunteers, we choose to donate our time and effort to provide these services to the community. Being unpaid volunteers, however, doesn’t mean you’re getting a lesser standard of service. Victor Fire members train weekly, with extra classes and exercises throughout the year. We have certified firefighters for both structure and wildland fire, licensed medical personnel, and other skilled volunteers as well.
