Matagorda VFD is a 100% volunteer community service organization with no paid staff. We receive some funding from the county, but we are primarily a donation and grant funded organization.

March calls for MVFD.

A Message from the Chief:
First of all I want to reassure everyone that the Matagorda Volunteer Fire Department is fully operational and still responding to all emergencies in the Matagorda area. However, we are taking some precautions to ensure that we continue to be available for all emergencies and do not spread this virus to the most vulnerable members of our community.

As such, I have ordered the Matagorda and Selkirk Fire Stations closed to the public. Access is only allowed for Active Duty First Responders. Please do not come to the fire station for any reason. Call 911 for all emergencies and report any flu like symptoms to the dispatcher. Additionally, First Responders will be wearing full face masks and pathogen barrier jackets on all medical calls and only one First Responder will come inside to make patient contact unless additional resources are needed.

The April Public Fire Department meeting will not be held in person, but instead will be by conference call.

Again, these procedures are just precautions to make sure we can continue to serve the community. We are closely monitoring the situation and will adjust our procedures if necessary. If you have any questions or concerns about the precautions we are taking, please let us know.
