The Plantation Volunteer Fire Association was established in 1956. The Plantation Fire Department was started in 1957 by 22 original Plantation residents including Mayor and former Fire Chief, Frank Veltri and City founder, Fred Peters.
The Association provides the personnel to the City to staff the Plantation Fire Department. Today the Association is comprised of more than 250 members all with the single interest of serving the citizens of Plantation.
Over the years the Association has grown to include so much more than just a group of firefighters. The Association conducts two annual, City-wide events that also serve as fundraisers.
The Annual Barbecue will celebrate its 60th Anniversary in November and has its roots all the way back to the beginning of the Fire Department. It has grown to be one of the largest and oldest traditions in the City. Click on the barbecue link above and order your tickets now.
