We are committed to you!

No experience is necessary to volunteer.
If you would like to volunteer, but cannot commit to the Fire or EMS team, please let us know as there are other opportunities. We would love to answer any questions you have and give you a tour!

There are multiple reasons for a 911 call including structure fires, car accidents, grass fires, hazardous materials incident, etcetera. The skills you can learn as a volunteer firefighter are invaluable.
