Welcome to Putnam County Volunteer Firemen's Association
"Organized in 1951"

The Putnam County Volunteer Firemen's Association ("PCVFA") was formed in 1951 with its general purpose being the promotion and development of the Putnam County Firefighters and Volunteer Ambulance personnel and the unification and coordination of the same, so that together they may, among other things:   More effectively assist in the Firematic and First Aid training of all the firefighters and ambulance personnel in the County, more successively support and execute the specific works of the firefighters and ambulance personnel and promote and encourage fire prevention and first aid education throughout Putnam County through the Putnam County Fire Departments/Companies and Volunteer Ambulance Corps.  We continue to aspire to this Mission Statement more than 70 years later.

Our Association meets five times a year at one of our Member Departments or VACs.  Our next meeting will be held:

MONDAY, MAY 23, 2022 at PUTNAM LAKE FD - 8:00PM
