How to join

Thank you for expressing interest in the Retreat Volunteer Fire Department. The Retreat Volunteer Fire Department provides a variety of Emergency Services to our community. We at the Retreat Volunteer Fire Department are very proud of our department and believe we provide the best medical and fire service to our community. We provide our citizens and people passing through our area with a high level of service.

The Retreat Volunteer Fire Department provides emergency response to approximately 15 square miles starting at the City of Corsicana to the banks of Richland Creek. We also provide mutual aid to 30+ square miles with our neighboring departments.

The Retreat Volunteer Fire Department provides training for its members, to include: Firefighter classes, First Aid and CPR. Please realize you must have extra time in your schedule for emergency responses, training, and department functions. We mention this so you can take this into consideration before making a decision about joining our Department. Balancing family, work, other obligations, and recreation, while still providing time for our Department can sometimes be challenging, however rewarding, as well. This should give you a brief idea of what we are all about at the Retreat Volunteer Fire Department. Again, thank you for expressing interest in our department. We hope to make your experiences in emergency services a rewarding one.

Our meetings are held at our station the 3rd Thursday of the month at 7pm. All are welcome.
