Pensaukee Volunteer Fire Department

The Pensaukee Volunteer Fire Department serves the township of Pensaukee, including the communities of Brookside, Oak Orchard, Kunzer Beach, and Pensaukee.  We also help the surrounding communities when they need us and they, in turn, help us out as well.

We have approximately sixteen (16) dedicated members on the Fire Dept. (we can always use more) and there are four (4) members on the PFD EMS (Emergency Medical Services) Team, two (2) of whom are also Firefighters.  Along with the Firefighters and EMS Team, there is also a Support Team – PFD Booster Buddies with six 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 as well as provide the Firefighters and EMS Teams with refreshments and healthy snacks at large fire scenes or training events.

There is a Fire Dept. meeting the third Tuesday of every month at 6 p.m. in the Fire Dept. meeting hall and it is open to the public.

We currently have two (2) Pumpers, two (2) Water Trucks, one (1) John Deere Gator for brush fires, and one (1) Brush Truck.

As you may have noticed, our present fire station is a little bit crowded.  We are currently in the process of designing a new station with the future in mind. Thank you to all who have been so supportive of this goal. Building should begin in Spring of 2022!

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 Support Team can all use more members.  If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at 920-604-0227.
