The Community

I love Community Spirit, how can I be involved?

We are so glad you ask, because we love it too!

Sunshine Valley residents are so blessed to have their own Fire Department; however, the crew is completely made up of volunteers.


This is fantastic but as you can imagine, extra volunteers are always welcome!


If you can’t volunteer but still want to help, you can!


By donating, fund raising or simply collecting empty beverage containers.
Every little bit goes towards funding the operations of the SVVFD.

For more information please follow Sunshine Valley Volunteer Fire Department on Facebook.
