KENEFICK VOLUNTEER FIRE DEPARTMENT
Thank you for visiting the the Kenefick Volunteer Fire Department Website. We hope this will give you the information and help that you need to get to know your fire department better. The Fire Department is located in Liberty County in the heart of downtown Kenefick, TX.
We were established January 2, 1978 by Leroy Parker, Gary Holley, and Robert Hegemeuller for the sole purpose of protecting and serving the citizens of the community and to aid the surrounding fire departments in keeping life and property safe during disaster, whether, natural or man-made. On December 8, 1986 we were recognized as an existing fire department in Rural Fire Prevention District 4, of Liberty County. We then became an Emergency Service District (ESD 1) in September 2003 and are one of only four (4) ESD's in Liberty County along with Westlake, Hardin, and Hull-Daisetta Volunteer Fire Departments.
We strive to take part in all aspects of our community, which includes benefits, cook-offs, and various fundraisers. We host the Annual Kenefick Kountry Weekend every year to help raise money to upgrade our facilities, vehicles and training needs. A few other events that we are involved in include the annual Dayton and Kenefick Christmas Parades, Valentine's Dance, Bar-B-Q, Chili, and fish fry fundraisers, and an occassional bake sale.
The Kenefick Volunteer Fire Department is made up of men and women trained to handle all types of fires. We are trained to handle house fires as well as brush and vehicle fires. We also support the surrounding fire departments and Liberty County EMS in lending Mutual Aid, helping extinquish fires, directing traffic at accidents, setting up a landing zone so that Life Flight can land, load victims and take off in a safe and timely manner.
The First Responders are always on call to aid Liberty County EMS with accident and fire victims as well as other patients when needed. We were awarded the First Responder Organization of The Year Award by Liberty County EMS, both, in 1998 and 2000.
