Our newest volunteers began their six week KVFD basic orientation course today, ahead of starting EMT class in January. They will learn about how our department works, it’s history, ambulance operations, taking vital signs, and more. They will start riding on apparatus this coming week! We have two new administrative members as well, who are learning the critical support functions our department has.

Recruitment for the volunteer fire and EMS service never stops…we are now accepting applications for our next class that begins in April.

KVFD/Station 5 is 100% staffed by volunteers nights and weekends. Have you applied yet? No experience necessary. www.Kvfd.org/join-Kvfd/

Good luck and enjoy the ride

It’s Saturday, a good day to head to Strosniders Hardware Strosniders Hardware to get those fall projects done!

When checking out at the register, please ask to ROUND UP your purchase to the next dollar amount, and Strosniders will donate that difference to KVFD!

Visit our friends at the corner of Connecticut and Knowles, and thank you for your support!

(While you’re there, we always recommend buying smoke alarms if you need new ones, and fire extinguishers too!)
