Wallace District
Volunteer Fire Department

WVFD Fleet

The members of our department have taken training in fire fighting, first aid, vehicle extraction, water rescue and wildland fire fighting. It is hard to have everyone trained in every aspect of what we do. Our role has progressed a lot further than just a fire fighting team. We are fortunate that all our members have been able to take training in different courses to better enable us to respond to many types of emergency situations.
The volunteers who have served the department as Fire Chief are:

WVFD Front
From an old 1956 International truck that did not start well in cold weather, we now have 4 modern fire trucks.

1998 Metalfab Pumper Tanker
1992 Ford 3/4 ton utility truck
1992 Ford Rescue Van
2001 Metalfab Pumper Tanker

We currently have in service 12 sets of breathing apparatus, we are upgrading our turnout gear. All members have pagers; the hall has a modern communications system.A generator was purchased for us by the Auxilliary for the Millennium year. Most recently we purchased a Rescue-Boggan to use for response to ATV / Snowmobile accidents. This was cost shared by the Fire Dept. Auxilliary, Route 6 Snowmobile Club and Fire Department. The Snowmobile Club and ATV Club have given us a list of contacts to call and they will respond to the emergency with the proper machine to tow the Rescue-Boggan.
