Interested in becoming a Volunteer Firefighter?
Pecan Grove Volunteer Fire Department consists of members of your community (your neighbors) who volunteer their time to help the firefighters at Pecan Grove Volunteer Fire Department. We train every week with the crews to stay proficient with changing technology and equipment. Unlike some Texas communities that rely completely on volunteer firefighters, we are a combination department with paid and volunteer firefighters.
