Who We Are

Members of our organization are volunteers and come from all different walks of life, age, and gender.  We are looking for those who wish to serve their community in a positive way.  No prior experience is needed, and all training will be at the local, state, and federal level. 

What We Do

Becoming a volunteer firefighter is one of the more rewarding jobs one could ever have. As volunteers we rush away from our family, friends, and careers to help our neighbors when they are in need. Volunteer firefighters respond to all types of emergency calls ranging from residential & commercial fire alarm, car accidents, boat and water rescues, request for medical assistance, and house fires.  Our jobs as volunteers doesn't just end there, we also assist in educating the public in fire safety and first responder medical aid. We also conduct fundraisers to help community charity and civic groups within our town. if you think you can fill these rolls, we would love to hear from you!

Firefighter Training

As a Probationary firefighter you will learn all the necessary skills, procedures and equipment to conduct firefighting and emergency response operations. We continuously provide opportunities to figure your training through advanced licensure and technician-level certifications including:

How Do I Get Involved?

Are you a motivated person? Do you like challenging tasks? Are you hardworking and dedicated? Would you like to make a difference in the community by helping others in need? 

If you answered YES to these questions, then volunteering is for you!  Remember, not everyone needs to fight the fires! There are many non-fire administrative and support roles that need to be filled to keep a volunteer fire department operating smoothly.
