Invest in the future of the Seward Volunteer Fire Department.
Seward Volunteer Fire Fund (SVFD) established this non-endowed agency fund with ACF to provide equipment, public education, fire prevention initiatives, capital projects, personnel expenses, or other necessary causes.
We are dedicated to the preservation of life and property through prevention, education, and emergency response.
SVFD responds to over 300 calls each year. We respond to medical emergencies, fires, water rescues, mountain rescues, and more. Our fleet of apparatus consists of 3 engines, 1 Quint, 1 light rescue/mini pumper, 1 heavy rescue, 2 command trucks, 1 Jeep/squad, and a fire boat. While SVFD officially provides services within Seward City Limits, we also provide mutual aid response to three neighboring departments: Bear Creek, Moose Pass, and Lowell Point. The population of the service area is approximately 3,500, though the population can swell to nearly 10,000 during the summer months.
We operate a combination department of three full-time staff, supplemented with volunteer responders. We have over 25 members in our ranks, which include auxiliary volunteers.
