 MVFD membership
          Membership in the Machias Vol. Fire Dept. is open to anyone residing in the town of Machias who is over the age of 18.  Teenagers may join the Machias Junior Fire Department.  Members of the "Juniors" receive Fire and EMS training, and assist with non-hazardous tasks at various incidents.  Upon their 18th birthday, members of the Junior department may join Machias Fire Dept. as regular members.  After five years of service, members may request Exempt status.  Upon approval of this status by the membership, Exempt members are carried on the roster, but are no longer required to remain active.  General membership meetings are held the first Tuesday of every month, with the election of Fire Dept. officers at the April meeting.
