Our condolences to our brothers and sisters at Rockville Volunteer Fire Department, Inc.. Rest In Peace, Chief Emmons. ... See MoreSee Less

We are excited to announce that our "world famous" Chili Cook-Off is indeed happening this year - as a special Drive-Thru edition! The Chilis will be prepared by past Cook-Off champions, and will be available for online pre-order and pickup in various sizes on March 20th.

We are currently seeking sponsors for the event. See flyer for details, and if you or your business is interested in being a sponsor this year, please email treasurer@kvfd.org or PM us.

Sponsoring a KVFD event is a great way to show support of your local volunteer fire department, and get your name out to our community.

Marti Baker.....you gonna be there?

Chilli cook-off in FL is another way of saying giant cage match in a park. 😂

It’s a really exciting time at KVFD .... many of our front-line volunteers have been getting their COVID Vaccine shots in recent weeks!

This is a really important step forward in keeping us, and you, safe as we continue to staff our engines and ambulances nights and weekends, without fail.

There is light at the end of the tunnel - we are getting there!
