In the winter of 1983 a handful of dedicated individuals looking to serve their community, purchased two older model fire trucks and formed what we know now as Almaville Volunteer Fire & Rescue. Shortly after acquiring the apparatus a lease agreement was signed for the Old Almaville School site and it became the first Almaville Fire Station. To better accommodate the new fire department, five additional truck bays and a day room were added. In 1992, our headquarters "Station 15" on One Mile Lane was opened and in 2004 we added Station 3 on Weakly Lane. Our department has continued to grow with the community to provide adequate coverage to our district. We strive to provide the best emergency services possible.
We keep our mission simple and succeed in accomplishing it with a strong relationship between the department, the community, and local government. The officers and firefighters of the AFRD shall stay current with the new changes in education, information, procedures, and technologies that will enable us to handle emergency situations most effectively. The department shall also retain a good working relationship with the neighboring fire departments. This allows reciprocating assistance in the form of equipment resources and mutual & automatic aid coverage. It is our promise that we will serve our community with honor, and the highest level of professionalism possible at all times. It is the department’s job to provide the best fire protection and rescue services for the citizens of Rutherford County.
