The Williamson Valley-Bagdad Fire District

The Williamson Valley Fire District (WVFD) was established in 1986 as a volunteer fire department by the residents of Hootenanny Holler who saw a need for fire protection in the northern Williamson Valley Area. With the continued growth of the area, the volunteer department was transformed into a paid (combination) fire district in 2000, which included the addition of a paid fire chief, six full-time firefighters and a dedicated staff of volunteer firefighters.

In 2013, the WVFD merged with Bagdad Fire & Rescue and became the Williamson Valley-Bagdad Fire District. The new WVBFD encompasses more than 300 square miles of fire and ambulance district, and is staffed by 19 full-time firefighters and more than 50 reserve firefighters.
