***Update*** In April we deployed this device for the first time. With the assistance of this device we were able to restore the heartbeat to a person whose heart had stopped. This machine paid for itself after its first use!
Welcome to the Priceville Volunteer Fire Department!
This is the Priceville Volunteer Fire Department located outside of Decatur, AL. We are a department of 30+ dedicated individuals who respond to over 700 calls per year. In 2008, we were evaluated by Insurance Services Office (ISO for short) with a score of 4/9 in the city, and 5/9 outside of the city limits. We welcome you to look at our site and see what we have going on in our community. Please come back frequently as we update the information and calendars often.
Strong Leadership: Providing guidance to motivate members of the department to meet and exceed the department’s goals. The key is establishing the appropriate plan to reach the desired goals. That can also include the preparation of members to accept future demanding roles in the department, preparing the department to meet the ever-changing demands of the fire service, and ensuring the department can meet the needs of a growing community.
Positive Public Image: Without a good image, the department will certainly fail. We will not recruit new members, receive support from the members of the community, or receive adequate support from neighboring agencies. Therefore it is a MUST to act in a professional manner at all times.
-At a minimum, we desire a six (6) minute response time to have at least one member on scene. We owe it to the community to meet their needs in a timely manner.
-To have at least 75% of our membership certified through the level of Firefighter 1.
-To have at least 50% of our membership certified as EMT-B or above.
Fire Station 1: Bethel Road
This is our new station. It was formerly a trucking company's service center, thus making it perfect to accommodate fire trucks.
This is where we meet on Tuesday nights. This station is primarily for covering the area at the bottom of Price Mountain. The map and address are below.
Come and visit us:
1638 S. Bethel Road
Fire Station 2: New Center Road
In 2008, we expanded this station to three bays to support our growing department.
The department recently added on to this station to accommodate the arrival of our new apparatus. This station primarily covers the top of Price Mountain.
