Pleasant View Volunteer Fire Department (PVVFD) is proud of their
commitment to fire and life safety. Although the amount of lives
we save cannot be tracked, we know our programs continue to make
a difference. The Fire Department is able to reach over 3,000 students
in the month of October for Fire Prevention Month. We are dedicated
to the well-being of our communities in which we serve. We believe
that even one life lost is too many…
Fire Safety House was awarded to the PVVFD from a Federal Grant.
We have had this for over 10 years and many of the elementary
school children are familiar with this equipment. The Fire Safety
House is used at all of the Elementary Schools throughout the
PVVFD District. Each student has the opportunity to go inside
and learn about fire and life safety. While inside the Safety
House we teach the students about a few different topics. Some
examples are: smoke alarms, crawl low under smoke, safe meeting
place, and get out and stay out.
The Fire Sprinkler
Trainer was awarded to the PVVFD from a Federal Grant. The Fire
Sprinkler Trainer is not only used all around the county, but
it is used State-wide and has even traveled to different states
to demonstrate the benefit of residential and commercial Fire
Sprinklers. The PVVFD makes sure that the Middle Schools in
the district are able to see the demonstration of Fire Sprinklers.
This trainer also is used at different community events and
has been taken to different businesses as well. Fire Sprinklers
Patches and Pumper! If you have a child who has been through
our fire prevention program – they know exactly who Patches
is! Patches was awarded to the PVVFD from a Federal Grant. We
have had Patches for over 10 years, but the students love him
and we can’t have a prevention program without his help.
Patches is a robot, who can talk with the students. He will
drive around in his Fire Truck, flash his lights, turn on his
sirens, and on a warm day even spray some water! We love Patches
and the students do too!
