    Smile Www.pvfd.net

    Our site has been around a while but I'm constantly updating information and adding pictures. This spring we obtained WWW.PVFD.NET as our sites URL.

    nice site

    a few questions:

    How old is your FD?

    What is the population of your town and how long has it been around?

    Our department formaly organized in 1961. I'm not sure if there were one or two trucks at that time. They were kept downtown at a gentleman's plumbing business before the formality began. When the department formally organized a two bay station (pole barn shell) was built less than one block away from the plumbing business. The fire siren was moved over to the new station and put on top of a windmill tower. We still have that fire siren but we don't use it that much today thanks to pagers. The town population is about 450 and our response area approximately 2200. We have roughly 61 square miles to cover. Our call volume last year was 163 runs with 120 being non-transport medical. The town was plotted in 1824.

    Sounds like I need to add some of this to the web page. I've been wanting to talk to some of the old timers about how things were back in the day but just never have been able to get around to it.

    Unfortunately I feel that the VFD is not backed by the community today as it once was 30-40 years ago.
