Waterloo Volunteer Fire & Rescue was established in 1975 with two military surplus trucks, and a few residents wanting to help. WVFRD has evolved over the years to operating 3 stations, 10 Fire Trucks with 70 volunteer Firefighters, EMT’s , Jr. Firefighters, and Support Staff dedicated to serving the community in which we live. Most of WVFRD’s fire district of 125 square miles is covered under an ISO class 6. By providing a quick and quality response to emergency calls including fire, rescue, medical emergencies, vehicle extrication, we feel that WVFRD has made a contribution to the quality of life in our rural area.
We are also committed to public education through activities like Fire Prevention Week where we visit our local school, Accident reenactments during prom week, and our junior firefighter program. Our junior firefighter program allows students that meet criteria of school grades, driving record, and good community standing, to train and participate in the program which gives them the ability to learn responsibility, leadership and community pride. We also have a scholarship program for the junior firefighters, scholarships are given on the criteria of leadership, attendance, and need. WVFRD is proud to serve the town of Waterloo and the surrounding communities and look forward to a continued partnership with the People that has made this area great.
