Welcome!       Responses this year.  42 as of 8/30/20

You can use the donate button at the left, 

or mail to: 9582 Hi Ridge Trl, Spencer, IN 47460

We proudly serve the Town of Cataract, Jennings Township and western Montgomery Township of southern Indiana. Mutual aid provided throughout Owen and surrounding counties.



Unfortunately due to the State Covid 19 requirements in place for an event our size, we have made the decision to cancel the Bean Dinner for 2020. This decision was not taken lightly as it provides more than half of our annual funds to run our department. We, like all our vendors and the community were hoping things would change and we would not have had to do this.


We would appreciate any financial assistance from the community we can to help ease this major financial burden for us. We will be taking donations that weekend in Cataract and as always you can make a contribution through our PayPal donate button or mail a check to us. Check the Fundraisers & Projects page for more info.


Help Us Help You!


Address signs only $15 and we install free.

Free installed smoke detectors if you do not have one. 


Welcome to the Cataract Volunteer Fire Department website. We strive to keep you informed of current & upcoming events, the needs of our department and helpful tips on fire prevention. Please feel free to contact us with questions and suggestions.


Please remember to change your smoke detector batteries twice a year. The daylight savings time changeover is a good time to help you remember. Practicing fire drills with your family and talking to your kids about fire safety can help save you and your family's life.

Stay Safe, Cataract Volunteer Fire Dept.
