Our Community Needs More Volunteer Firefighters  Join Us

Our Community Needs More Volunteer Firefighters

When the Fire Department responds to fires and other emergencies, it requires a team of trained personnel to effectively protect our community. Over the last 10 years we have seen a 20% increase in the calls for service.

With the continued growth in the community, we estimate that our calls for service will only increase. With growth comes the need for additional volunteers.

The success of the Volunteer Fire Department depends on community support. The Volunteer Fire Department needs residents with all types of skills and abilities.

Be part of the tradition. Be part of the excitement. Be part of the community.
