Sixteen Volunteer firefighters respond to emergencies 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

 

Volunteer firefighters fulfill a number of important  duties. Along with putting out structure fires, volunteer firefighters respond to car accidents, natural disasters and other emergencies. According to the National Fire Protection Association, in the United States, almost 70 percent of all firefighters serve in a volunteer role.

 

Typically, volunteer firefighters  work in communities with fewer than 25,000 people, with nearly half serving jurisdictions with fewer than 2,500 people.

 

Volunteer firefighters respond to residential, business and other structural fires. They work to suppress the fire using a number of means, including laying water lines, putting up ladders, creating necessary ventilation and entering the property, if necessary.

 

Volunteer firefighters respond to other emergency situations, such as car accidents and natural disasters. Volunteer firefighters rescue victims and provide first aid, including CPR, mouth-to-mouth breathing and wound care.

 

In an all-volunteer  fire departments, the firefighters are responsible for maintenance and care of the fire vehicles and equipment. Maintenance duties also extend to the fire station itself; common chores

include mowing the grass, attending to the landscaping and cleaning. At a fire or accident, volunteer

firefighters work to clean up the scene to prevent any additional damage and may have to shovel sweep or remove debris.

 

In addition to the drills and responding to calls, HVFD members also organize, run, or participate in numerous community events.

 

We always do our best to uphold the finest standards of professionalism, compassion, and care on every incident we respond to.
