The Priceville Volunteer Rural Fire Department was formed in 1973 by a handful of dedicated visionaries and incorporated in 1976. They were donated an old military truck and scavenged the remaining materials to make themselves the department’s first fire truck. It had a home-made steel tank, a small pump, and a few hundred feet of hose. We respect the hard work our founders put forth. A lot has changed since the day those men started protecting the community. Today, the Priceville Volunteer Fire Department has grown to have over 30 members, two stations, and numerous high-tech trucks and equipment. The demands of the fire service have also changed over the years with the evolving societies and technologies. In turn, this requires our team to more highly trained and flexible to respond to such emergencies.
