Service Since 1957

In 1957 a group of 17 civic minded citizens conceived a volunteer fire department to serve the newly born community of Plantation.  Since that time, Volunteer firefighters have been in service to the City of Plantation. 

Today the Plantation Fire Department is the largest volunteer fire department in Florida. It is a multi-faceted community service agency providing a variety of services including fire suppression, emergency medical services, fire prevention, public education, and emergency management.

Welcome to the official website of the Plantation Volunteer Fire Association.  The PVFA is comprised of some of the finest people I know and supports the largest volunteer fire department in Florida.

We celebrate a long and storied history of service to the residents of Plantation and represent the true spirit of neighbor helping neighbor.

Feel free to scan through our pages and discover how the Plantation Volunteer Fire Association and its members are so much more than just firefighters.

Our members are community leaders who take great pride in making Plantation the great city that it is.

So take your time and learn about what we do and how we contribute to the City’s well-being and growth.  And if you live within the City and have a high school diploma, why not learn how you can “Become One of Us.”
