“Volunteers Serving Their Community With Pride”
The Woodville Volunteer Fire Department is looking for a few good men and women to join our family of Dragon Slayers. We are looking for people who want to help strangers when the help is needed the most. We are dispatched alongside members of the Tallahassee Fire Department and Leon County Emergency Medical Services. All training and equipment are provided at no cost to you. You will learn lifesaving skills like CPR and First Aid, safe chainsaw operations, pump and hose operations, and apparatus operation.
Thank you for visiting our website and for your 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 the 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 that 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 and 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.
Once you have completed the required paperwork you may contact me, Richard Meuth, Fire Chief at 850-933-4018, mail the paperwork to the address below or bring it to our next monthly meeting. Meetings are on the second Saturday of each month. Meetings are held at the Woodville Library located at 8000 Old Woodville Highway and the meetings begin at 10 am.
