We are a dynamic group of people with various backgrounds and life experiences. We are business people, students, law enforcement, fire service, medical services, bankers, teachers and much more. We form a close knit family that is committed to serving our hometown. 

How much time does it take to be a volunteer?

We train every Sunday morning (10am to 12pm), Monday Night (7pm to 10pm) and we have company meetings every second Tuesday of the month. We are on call 24/7, 365 days a year for our community and when you are home and the pager, text message or siren goes off, you respond directly from where you are to the firehouse to answer the call for a neighbor in need.

No expenses at all. Trainings, dress uniform, badges, pager, firefighting equipment are all provided to you free of charge.
