We could not do what we do without the following volunteer officers and firefighters!
SVFD volunteer firefighters spend countless personal hours training to be the best we can to assist the public. We are always looking for new volunteers to train to be firefighters. If you have a desire to do something great for your community and become apart of a family of brothers and sisters who work side by side, we invite you to come on down to the station on Wednesday nights and see what its all about.
Volunteer firefighters live everyday lives like everyone else in the community, they have jobs, families and events and sometimes even sleep, calls never come at a convenient time, it maybe dinner time or a kids sporting event and they drop what they are doing and respond to the emergency and take care of the task at hand. Once the emergency is over equipment has to be cleaned and restocked for the next call before they can go about their normal lives. So next time you see a vehicle with its lights and sirens going, please move to the side of the road and allow them to pass, so that they can safely get to the location of the call to assist your neighbor, friend or even a family member.
After 28 years with the Sisterdale VFD Chief John Hernandez has decided to retire as the chief of the department. His leadership, guidance and presence will be greatly missed. We wish him the best in life and he will always be apart of the department.
