Operation Fire Cuffs

PFFV Firefighters In Action

There have been 3 fires in the past week where PFFV firefighters have responded quickly and contained the fires to the building of origin. Williston L4611 members responded to a fire alarm and arrived on scene to find a fire in a basement. Their quick response and agressive firefighting allowed them to keep the fire to contained to the basement with only minor extension to the first floor. South Burlington L3671 responded to a fire in a residential structure under renovation. The first due company had heavy fire on arrival, but thanks to a quick response and agressive firefighting they were able to keep the fire from spreading to other structures. And Montpelier L2287 responded to a fire in a residential structure which was ruled an arson fire. Their quick response prevented the fire from spreading to other nearby structures.



There are hundreds of crashes everyday, many of which are caused by distracted driving. The next time your phone vibrates, beeps, dings, or alerts you to a new message, think about whether or not you can #JustifyIt. Wait until you have reached your destination, or pull over and stop in a safe designated area to check your messages.

The Importance of Photoelectric Smoke Detectors

The Professional Firefighters of Vermont worked hard with legislators to pass a bill requiring the usage of photoelectric smoke detectors in commercial and residential buildings in Vermont. Lives have been saved thanks to the hard work by the PFFV and the VT Legislature
