The Forks Fire District affords to each active firefighter a supplemental accidental death and dismemberment insurance policy in the event you are injured in the line of duty. Each member is also covered by workmen’s compensation and the VFBL. This affords both the firefighter and their family financial security in the unlikely event that they are injured or killed in the line of duty.
Members of the Forks Fire Department enjoy social events such as Firefighters Day in the Park, summer picnics, attending conventions and parades as well as our inspection and installation of officer’s dinners.
