The mission of the Woodbury Volunteer Fire Department is to provide the highest degree of protection for life, property and the environment. This service is provided safely and efficiently.
The Woodbury Volunteer Fire Department was officially recognized on June 7, 1928 and now responds to more than 300 emergency calls annually.
The Department maintains seven Fire Trucks, one UTV, and a Command Vehicle in two companies at two fire houses.
The Chief and Deputy Chief are elected every two years by the firefighters of both companies. The Company Officers are a captain, first lieutenant and second lieutenant. Officers are elected by the members of each company and serve for one year.
All officers and firefighters must meet rigid inter-department and state-mandated training and certification requirements. The department is very proud of its training and high standards.
The Department is funded by the Town of Woodbury’s municipal budget on a line-item basis. The chief, with the help of the officers, prepares and presents the budget yearly to the Department, the Board of Fire Commissioners, the Board of Finance and the Selectmen.
Volunteers encounter an enriching experience. They learn new skills, make lifelong connections, and play an integral role in keeping Woodbury safe. As a volunteer, you will make a significant difference in everyone’s lives. Volunteers work alongside a close-knit group of individuals who share passion for service. The Department is a friendly environment and has an open door to anyone who wants more information and may be interested in joining.
