The Pensaukee Volunteer Fire Department started in 1974 with one donated water tank on a trailer. In 1980, Pensaukee Fire Department (PFD) became a dedicated fire department.
The PFD serves the township of Pensaukee, Wisconsin, located approximately 25 miles north of Green Bay. PFD also serves the communities of Brookside, Oak Orchard, Kunzer Beach, as well as providing mutual aid to Oconto, Oconto Falls, Abrams, and Little Suamico.
We have approximately 20 dedicated members on the Fire Department (we can always use more) and there are five members on the First Responders team, three of whom are also firefighters. Along with the Firefighters and First Responders, there is also a Booster Club with 13 hard-working members. The Booster Club helps raise funds for needed supplies and also provides the firefighters with refreshments and food at large fires and training events.
There is a Fire Department meeting the third Tuesday of every month at 7 pm in the Fire Department meeting hall and it is open to the public. There is a work night on the fourth Tuesday of each month and training on the first Saturday and first Monday of every month as well. The Booster Club meets on the first Tuesday of every month at 6:30 pm and the public is welcome to attend as well. We also have special events throughout the year. You can see upcoming meetings and events on our Calendar.
We currently have one Pumper, one Equipment Van, two Water Trucks, one John Deere Gator for brush fires, and one Brush Truck. You can view the equipment here.
What we need most is support from you, the townspeople. That support can be in the form of coming out to fundraising events, donating for fundraisers, or possibly even joining us. The Fire Department, First Responders and Booster Club can all use more members.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.
