The mission of the Vanderpool Volunteer Fire Department is to minimize loss of life and property for all that live, visit, or work within our department boundary from the adverse effect of fires or exposure to dangerous conditions created by nature or man and to assist other emergency agencies as needed.
We will achieve this mission through training and fire education while providing the best services to our community. We strive to promote harmony and good relations with the community with events that bring the community and the department together.
We are committed to providing an environment which fosters teamwork among members. We desire to have an atmosphere of open communication which promotes the health and welfare of individual members.

Training is very important and something that we take seriously. All of our volunteers engage in regular training courses and drills so that we can provide the best service in a responsible and safe manner.
We're working for you! Please be aware that we occasionally land EVAC helicopters on the road. Please drive carefully when approaching an emergency scene for your safety and that of the volunteers.
