ATASCOCITA, Texas - The Atascocita Volunteer Fire Department would like to ask you to help us continue a 38-year tradition of volunteerism by inviting you to participate in our 2016/2017 Recruit Academy and become a full-fledged fire fighter.

The AVFD relies on volunteer members of the community to provide a crucial part of its staffing for emergency apparatus. To accomplish this we need a continuous flow of properly trained personnel willing to give some of their free time to help their community. Are you that person?

The AVFD offers a very highly respected recruit training academy that will prepare you for a career in the volunteer fire service. Training is designed to meet the needs of community members with full time jobs and families. Within 6 short months, you can be riding a fire truck for the AVFD and serving the community of Atascocita as an emergency responder.

Becoming a member of our volunteer organization will bring you great satisfaction, excitement and create life-long friendships. We offer some of the very best training available in the area.  We also offer a volunteer stipend program.  We encourage you to see what our organization is all about.


  • At least 16 years old
  • Commit to a 6 month training academy, 2 nights per week, and every other Saturday.
  • After graduation, serve a minimum of two 12 hour shifts per month
  • Stay current with training
  • Have the desire to help others
