A little bit about us.....
The Dorchester Volunteer Fire Department consists of local community members. Currently, we have 21 firefighters but are always in need of new members. The Department responds to a variety of emergency situations as well as medical emergencies and mutual aid response. We are committed to helping our community, and are on call 24/7/365!
Our training takes place every Tuesday from 7pm to 9pm. We encourage anyone who may be interested to stop by any Tuesday evening and see what is involved. You can also pick up an application at the Village office. It is a big time commitment but the rewards of helping out your community are wonderful.....and we are a fun bunch to hang out with too!
If you would like more information about becoming a firefighter or our junior firefighter program, visit our contact us page and we will fill you in.
This year the Fire Prevention theme is
"Every Second Counts, Plan 2 Ways Out".
You never realize how important it is to have a home escape plan until it is needed. It will save lives, to know your escape routes out of your home in the event of a fire. Plan your two ways out of each room in your home, and know your meeting place. It is also very important for children to know to NEVER go back into a home that is on fire for anything! A fire doubles in size every 30 seconds, so what was a small kitchen fire could be an out of control fire within minutes.
