In service since 1960.
Our department was chartered in 1960 as non-profit corporation and is
governed by a Board of Trustees who arrange for and oversee our
budget. They also appoint the Fire Chief for three year terms. We
receive our operating budget as an appropriation from Town raised
taxes, and fund raise an additional capital budget ourselves. New
pumpers are purchased by the Town, with tax money raised by a warned
article at Town Meeting.
TVFD is entirely volunteer and is staffed by 25 to 30 dedicated
members who carry pagers 24 hours every day of the year. Our members
will literally stop what they are doing and respond to their station.
We respond to all calls with fully staffed apparatus and work hard to
provide the Town with a professional level of service.
