Taipei Volunteer Fire Department

The Taipei Volunteer Fire Department (TVFD) was formed in 1954.

Burning Bright since 1954


In 2019 the TVFD celebrated its 65th Year!!

On June 14, 1954 a group of twelve men got together at the New Formosa Restaurant just off Yen Ping North Road in Taipei for a farewell party for a departing British Sailor who had been stationed with the British Consulate in Taiwan.

During that party, those twelve men gave birth to an idea to form a permanent male social group and to get together once a month for dinner and a few drinks. The first Friday of every month was selected as an appropriate date and that monthly meeting date has prevailed ever since.

Over the years we have supported TFD fire prevention awareness events, had CPR training, and some informal training out on the fire trucks.
