Employees and volunteers of the Town of Torbay deliver the services, run the programs and operate the facilities that make life in Torbay beautiful and better every day.
The Torbay Volunteer Fire Department (TVFD) was formed in 1974, after a tragic fire took the lives of six Torbay residents. In an ongoing commitment to help ensure such a tragedy never happens again, these dedicated Volunteers give freely of their time and energy, continually training and honing their skills. If you would like to be one of those volunteers, go to the TVFD page for contact information.
