Wolfforth Volunteer Fire Department
The Wolfforth Volunteer Fire Department was established in 1954 and provides fire and rescue services to 88 square miles in Southwest Lubbock County. Currently, the Fire Department consists of 18 dedicated volunteers.
Wolfforth VFD emphasizes current firefighting techniques and firefighter safety. The department received a FEMA grant for training, and established a thirteen month fire academy for Wolfforth and surrounding area firefighters, that is especially valuable to small volunteer departments. In addition to the academy, Wolfforth VFD hosts an annual rescue school each March. Both the academy and the rescue school are sanctioned by the Texas Engineering Extension Service, based at Texas A & M University.
