Mission Statement

The mission of the Austerlitz Volunteer Fire Company is to provide residents and other persons within the district’s coverage area, full Emergency Firematic and limited Emergency Medical Services.

Our Company strives to provide modern firefighting equipment and tactics, as well as trained firefighting personnel. We cover everything from actual fire calls, automobile accidents, flooding basements, and victims lost in the State Forest.

The health, safety and well being of the people served by the Austerlitz Volunteer Fire Company, as well as its members, in any emergency situation is of the utmost importance.

The Austerlitz Volunteer Fire Company realizes that firefighting is a truly physical and stressful service, one that is required for the safety of the community.

The Austerlitz Volunteer Fire Company will do its best to provide its members with a structured, knowledgeable and safe environment in which their firefighting and EMS duties and responsibilities may be carried out.
