Public Safety Staff
The VPSD recently achieved accreditation from the Commission on Fire Accreditation International. This accreditation places the department in a rare class of only a couple of hundred fire departments world-wide that have earned this honor.
When the VPSD was formed, it consisted of nine paramedic and EMT firefighters and one chief. VPSD worked out of one station (Station #41 next to the Sumter County Annex) and served the community with two EMS vehicles (Ford Explorers) and one fire engine. Just as The Villages has seen explosive growth over the past ten years, your fire department has grown just as quickly to keep pace. During the period from October 1, 2010 through September 30, 2011, was no different. VPSD added to and upgraded our fire and EMS fleet, added staff to provide service to our ever-growing community, and even added a new fire headquarters facility on Morse Boulevard. VPSD continues to be active in teaching community CPR, working with neighborhood AED programs and expanding other areas such as fire prevention and emergency management programs.
