The Kirkwood Volunteer Fire Department’s (KVFD) role is to protect families and homes in our wonderful community by providing protection of life, property, and the environment from the effects of fires and hazards and by responding to medical emergencies in a professional and courteous manner.
The Kirkwood Volunteer Fire Department’s need for funds for new equipment and supplies has evolved as the Kirkwood community has grown. Several fundraising events take place each year where community members participation adds to the Fire Department Equipment Fund. The KVFD Summer Festival and Silent Auction takes place over the Fourth of July weekend and the Annual 5K/10K and Kids Fun Run takes place over Labor Day weekend. Donations are however welcome all year. Click here to donate today and support Kirkwood’s all volunteer fire department.
The Kirkwood Volunteer Fire Department located at 33540 Loop Road serves the community of Kirkwood, CA, which geographically sits within three counties: Alpine, Amador and El Dorado. The community covers approximately three square miles and serves a permanent population estimated at 135, with a potential population (overnight stops) of approximately 7,008 in the winter months when the ski resort is open.
KVFD is called upon to respond to emergency medical calls, structural and wild land fires within the District and surrounding areas, assistance with vehicle accidents, hazardous spills, search and rescue. This service is provided not only within Kirkwood, but also east to Carson Pass, and west to Tragedy Springs. KVFD also provides mutual aid for other surrounding fire service providers if called.
