Our Mission Statement

Our mission is to protect and preserve life and property and minimize the threat to life and property cause by fire, medical or any other emergency through professional and prompt response supported by thorough preparedness and exceptional training.

Who Is Elephant Head VFD?

In 1994, a few conscientious and concerned members of your community formed the Elephant Head Volunteer Fire Department, Inc., a tax-exempt, non-profit, all volunteer, corporation.  This entity would serve approximately 5,800 residents living and visiting the communities of Arivaca Junction, Lakewood, Half-way Trailer Park, and Elephant Head.  EHVFD has 33 volunteers serving in various roles.  We have 14 Fire Fighters trained in structure fires; 10 Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs); 5 first responders trained in basic life-saving techniques and 7 support personnel who are board members, fundraisers, mechanics, etc.

What Does EHVFD Do?

EHVFD volunteers respond to an average of about 350 calls per year, including structure fires, brush fires, vehicle fires and accidents, medical emergencies and more.

How Can I Be protected?

EHVFD give folks who live within our service area an opportunity to subscribe for fire protection and emergency services each year.  If you subscribe today, you, your family, and your home are provided with fire protection and emergency services for 1 year.  You will not receive a bill for any services we provide you for twelve months!  Your coverage starts the day your donation is received. 

Can I Help?

EHVFD always needs more volunteers.  You do not have to be a firefighter or EMT.  You can help with the general operation of the department, maintenance of equipment and fund raisers.  Contact any member for information or write us at:
