Free installed smoke detectors if you do not have one. 


Welcome to the Cataract Volunteer Fire Department website. We strive to keep you informed of current & upcoming events, the needs of our department and helpful tips on fire prevention. Please feel free to contact us with questions and suggestions.


Please remember to change your smoke detector batteries twice a year. The daylight savings time changeover is a good time to help you remember. Practicing fire drills with your family and talking to your kids about fire safety can help save you and your family's life.

Stay Safe, Cataract Volunteer Fire Dept.
