Who we are
The Harrisville Volunteer Fire Department is comprised of members of the community who VOLUNTEER their time to train and respond to emergencies of all kinds.
The department was founded in 1949 by concerned citizens after a series of fires required agencies from other communities to respond to Harrisville.
Over the years, the department has responded to thousands of emergency calls in Ritchie County as well as Pleasants, Doddridge, Tyler, Calhoun, Gilmer, Wirt, Wood and Jackson Counties.
