The Cologne Volunteer Fire Company (CVFC) is launching its annual membership drive. The CVFC invites men and women over the age of 18 to serves the local community as volunteer firefighters. This unique experience will provide you with the excitement associated with responding to emergency calls while serving the local community and neighboring areas.
The CVFC is a professional organization which consists of a diverse membership that includes people of all ages, cultural backgrounds and professions. Its 100% membership provides fire suppression and emergency rescue services to the residents of the Township of Hamilton. The Cologne section is our primary area of coverage but we assist other fire companies located across the state.
Our fire company is one of the five all-volunteer fire companies that compose the Township of Hamilton Fire Department. It averages about 350 calls a year ranging from activated smoke and Carbon Monoxide alarms to elevator entrapment’s, motor vehicle accidents, hazardous materials and fully involved structure fires. Our fire station houses 2 engines, one truck and two command vehicles which enable us to perform engine/truck company operations. Our firefighters are fully certified in both areas and can adapt to perform multiple duties as needed by the local community or neighboring townships.
The Cologne Volunteer Fire Company expands over multiple generations. Our 50 years of history and tradition has allowed us to safeguard the life and property of our community residents during regular emergency calls affecting their household as well as natural disasters affecting a larger area.
Applicants need no prior experience or training to join the Cologne Volunteer Fire Company. Members will receive professional training at no cost. As a requirement, applicants need to be local residents or resident of any of the surrounding communities of the Township of Hamilton.
