Thank you for visiting our website and your recent interest in becoming a member of the Woodville Volunteer Fire Department.
Firefighting is an international brotherhood of people both paid and volunteers who have dedicated their lives to helping to prevent loss of life and the protection of property sometimes at great risk to themselves. Worldwide firefighters place themselves in harm’s way rushing to the aid of total strangers every single day.
Our department is made up of a group of very dedicated volunteers who respond to a variety of calls for assistance in the Woodville area and southern Leon County. We have three pieces of firefighting apparatus that respond along with the volunteers who respond from their own homes to provide the necessary manpower. However we do not respond alone, we have a mutual aid agreement with the Tallahassee Fire Department and they are the primary fire protection in all of the unincorporated portions of Leon County. I explain all of this so you, the applicant will understand why we screen our volunteers so thoroughly.
Our department is small in numbers but large in dedication and participation by all members. Our membership has different levels of participation consisting of administrative members managing the financial portion of the department. Our responding members handle fire suppression, medical emergencies, public fire prevention education, and general fire department tasks. Our auxiliary members assist in times of natural or manmade disasters when responding members need additional help with traffic control, clearing roadways of fallen trees, and other tasks that do not require them to enter the “Hot Zone” of a particular incident.
If this international brotherhood sounds like a family you would like to become a part of, please read the Standard Operating Procedures completely and follow the instructions contained in the SOPs. Download the membership package including the SOPs
