The Nevada Volunteer Fire Department currently operates (2) fire stations, serving both the City of Nevada (St.1) and the City of Lavon (St. 2) as well as a large section of rural Collin County. Our unincorporated area spans an overall distance of 33 square miles, just East of Lake Lavon. We provide Fire/EMS and rescue services to around 7000 people within our fire district.
The Nevada Volunteer Fire department was created in 1975, and has since become a tax-exempt
nonprofit 501(c)3 with 95% of their funding coming from tax based entity’s including Collin County, the City of Nevada and the City of Lavon. The remaining 5% comes from the community through fundraising events and private donations. All of our members volunteer their time and efforts in order to keep our neighbors safe. The department pays for all training, uniforms, equipment and other daily needs.
Both of our fire stations house a pumper truck, squad truck and brush truck. We also have in our fleet a tanker/tender, Command vehicle and one rehab vehicle. See our fleet here. Department Info/Apparatus
Currently, the membership roster contains 20 Firefighters, EMT’s, Paramedics and First Responders, each dedicated to providing the best service possible free of charge to our citizens. Each member spends over 100 hours in training each year and a great deal of time away from their family serving the community.
We are always looking for new members! We are currently in need of EMS/Nurses/Medics or others in the heath care field that are willing to give a few hours a month to serve. Come see us and sign up!
For those who just want to help the fire department and have some fun, check out our Support Services
group! Or for our younger folks, we now have a Fire Explorer program that works in cooperation with
Community ISD to help educate teens interested in a career in either the fire service or EMS fields.
