Volunteer Fire Department
A volunteer fire department (VFD) is a fire department composed of volunteers who perform fire suppression and other related emergency services for a local jurisdiction. A volunteer fire department can act in support of a career or otherwise paid fire department, or it can act as the primary response agency in an area. This varies between jurisdictions. The first large organized force of firefighters was the Corps of Vigiles, established in ancient Rome in 6 AD. The term "volunteer" contrasts with career firefighters who are fully compensated for their services. Some volunteer firefighters may be part of a combination fire department that utilizes both full-time and volunteer firefighters. In this way, a station can be staffed 24 hours between volunteer and career firefighters
