Welcome to the Waverly Volunteer Fire Department

The Waverly Volunteer Fire Department proudly serves Waverly and the surrounding areas with fire protection coverage.  We also respond to emergency calls for river rescues, automobile accidents and such, wherever and whenever we are called out to assist.  Our organization consists at any time of between 30-40 citizens of the city of Waverly who are all volunteers dedicated to protecting the community through public service.

Members of the department are also members of the Iowa Fireman's Association and many are Nationally and State Certified to minimum standards as firefighters.  We meet twice a month to train and conduct department business.   We are your neighbors and your co-workers. 

In 2007, the volunteers moved into a new facility. This is the third home of the WFD and will serve the department and community of Waverly and Bremer County well into the future. The new facility is a technologically advanced facility, boasting geothermal heating-for efficient, year-round constant temperatures, meeting rooms, training areas, a physical fitness area for fire fighters, and 7 apparatus bays, which accommodates the departments fleet of fire apparatus, including, 3 pumpers, 2 tankers, aerial, grass truck, rescue truck, boat, one all-terrain rescue/small field fire vehicle, and the bremer County Sheriff's boat.

The Waverly Fire Department recently acquired a 2008 E-one Bronto Aerial truck. The new aerial is equipped with an articulating boom, allowing for rooftop and multi-story rescue, and fire operation, as well as below grade rescue, making it a very versatile tool.

We are currently building a new museum next to the station. Once completed, the museum will house several pieces of antique fire apparatus and vehicles. The museum will be open year-round and free tours will be available by appointment. Please call the station at 352-5521 and leave a message to arrange your free tour.

Completion of the museum, purchase of the apparatus and vehicle displays and collections are all acquired and maintained by the volunteers and their fund-raising efforts. In addition to the museum, Waverly Volunteer Firefighters' fund raising also helps secure needed training and equipment throughout the year. The Waverly Firefighters are also proud to help "Fill the Boot" each year around Labor day to raise money for MDA and Muscular Dystrophy Research.
