The fire service in the United States has a rich tradition of volunteer fire departments dating back to the 1700’s. In most small to m id-size towns today, volunteer departments continue to provide quality, cost effective fire protection services to the community. In fact 73% of all firefighters in the United States are volunteers.
Fairview Volunteer Fire Department was formed by citizens like you, to protect life and property. Since then we have remained a strong volunteer organization. All members are volunteers, meaning that we work full time jobs in addition to the time we give to volunteer. Why do we do this? Some do it because someone else in our family was also a volunteer firefighter, others do it because we simply want to give back to the community and have an interest in firefighting.
