The Pleasantville Fire Department continues to serve the Village of Pleasantville and also its fire protection district. Members respond to over 500+ calls a year. PFD works out of two stations Head Quarters and “Station 2” Daniel P. Hays Hose Co. Firehouse. Our department is a non-profit organization and its members are 100% volunteers.
How the Department Functions
While we all work with a common goal, every operating unit in our department has an area of specialization.
- Our two pumpers, engine 91 and Engine 90 have primary responsibility for securing a water supply, locating the source of a fire and then suppressing it, “Getting the Wet Stuff on the Red Stuff!”
- Tower Ladder 5 handles “Roof Work,” such as ventilating a roof to let smoke and heat escape from within a building, as well as conducting searches for victims, and then getting them out safely.
- Rescue 47 carries the “Jaws of Life,” equipment used to free victims trapped in car crashes, and is prepared to deal with a host of other emergencies.
- Our youth organization, the Junior Corps, for the members under 18, gives the youth of Pleasantville an excellent opportunity to learn teamwork skills and mature into responsible, community-focused adults.
