NEW ENGINE COMING SOON!


We have some exciting news to share! We are expecting a new addition to the Undercliff VFC family! At 31 Feet Long, 50,000 pounds is our new fire engine! A few months back, our company set out on a project to look into replacing our current aging engine that is now 22 years old. As such, a truck build and finance committee was assembled to come up with a plan to find the best apparatus that would be well suited to serve our community for many years to come. The build committee had one simple goal in mind, to build the very best engine we can to serve our residents and businesses within the allotted budget we have. We also set out to build an engine that would be firefighter friendly for our firefighters and help make their job a little easier. 

After many long hours, phone calls, discussions, and meetings we are very pleased to announce that we have awarded our engine build contract to Seagrave Fire Apparatus! The build committee was very pleased and impressed with the quality of work that Seagrave puts out and felt this would be the very best long term investment for our company and the community.  Seagrave has also been very accommodating throughout the build process to help make this extremely smooth. We would like to take a moment to thank Ron from Flashover Fire Apparatus for all his time, patience, and expertise during this process! It was a pleasure to work with him. 

We would also like to take a moment and thank all of you, our supporters! None of this could ever of been possible without all of your generosity and support. We take the donated dollar very serious, and are committed to reinvesting the money we raise back in to public safety. This big purchase holds true to that mission as this new engine will allow us to better protect our community we serve. We cannot say THANK YOU to all of you enough and hope you will all continue to support us into the future! 

Our new Seagrave Marauder engine should hopefully arrive in late 2022. Be sure to watch for updates as we go through the build process. Pictured below is Chief Ganter and President Klocko signing our build contract as well as a group photo of the build committee. There is also a preliminary computer drawing of our new engine for you all to see. We are all very excited to be moving forward with this new project! Thank you again for all your support!

2021 YEAR IN REVIEW VIDEO


2021 has been a very busy year here at Undercliff VFC. We have had so many great accomplishments this year and we could not do it without all of our dedicated memnbers and YOU, our supporters! We invite you to take a look back at 2021 in our new year in review video. This video was debuted to our members this past weekend at our annual Christmas party and has become a fun tradition for our members. It allows us to reflect back on the last year and all the great things that have occurred at the station. 


We would like to thank all of you for all of your support in 2021! Our mission at Undercliff VFC has always been to provide our residents, visitors, and businesses with first class fire and rescue services and we look forward to continuing to do that in 2022! 


We wish you all a most happy holiday season! Please be safe in all your holiday celebrations!

479 CALLS FOR SERVICE IN 2021


This year has been nothing shy of busy for Undercliff VFC. In 2021, the men and women of Undercliff responded to 479 emergency calls for assistance. These calls ranged from house fires, building fires, vehicle fires, vehicle accidents, fire alarms, carbon monoxide alarms, odors of gas and other identified substances, and various other calls for assistance. We do not run any QRS/medical service so these are all fire service related calls. 


Those 479 calls took a lot of time, dedication, and sacrifice by our members. Our members put in thousands of hours; often missing family dinners, leaving their warms beds at night, and coming out in the worst of weather to serve their community. We do it all because we care and because we believe that public safety should be a top priority in our community.  


We do not get tax money here at Undercliff. We have to do our own fundraisers to keep the doors open and to keep you safe. We are so thankful for all your support in 2021! Whether you bought a raffle ticket, played our bingo, or just sent in your yearly mail in donation. It all helps us so much! Together, we make one team but we can always use more on our team. If you are ever interested in volunteering, get in touch with us! We would love to have you. We thank the community for their continued support, and look forward to another year of exceptional service! 


Have a safe and Happy New Year!!

MEMBERS ALWAYS NEEDED


Have you ever considered joining your local volunteer fire company? Do you have the drive to help your community and serve your neighbors?

Undercliff VFC is always looking for new members to join our family. We have two classes of membership here at Undercliff. We offer both firefighter and business member classes of membership. All firefighters receive FREE training from the company and are on the front lines to help people in their time of need. Our business members help raise the funds we need to purchase life saving equipment for our firefighters and also help with the day to day administrative roles here.

The following video was filmed, edited, and directed entirely by our members. It shows just what it is like to be a member here at Undercliff VFC and what it means to our members. We ask everyone to take 10 minutes and learn a little more about your local volunteer fire company. We can always use new members and encourage anyone out there that is on the fence about join to give it a try!

Feel free stop by any Monday to Friday night to talk to us and pick up an application. You can also message us directly with any questions. There has never been a better time to getting solved and volunteers are definitely needed!
