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.

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 16 dedicated members on the Fire Department (we can always use more) and four members on the EMS Team, two of whom are also firefighters. Along with the Firefighters and EMS Team, there is also a Support Team – PFD Booster Buddies with 6 hard-working members. The goal of the team is to provide positive assistance for PFD and the Community. The Booster Buddies help raise funds for needed supplies and also provide the Firefighters and EMS Teams with refreshments and healthy snacks at large fire scenes and training events.

There is a Fire Department meeting the third Tuesday of every month 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. We also have special events throughout the year. You can see upcoming meetings and events on our Calendar.

We currently have two Pumpers, 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, EMS Team and Booster Buddies can all use more members.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.
