Want to help your community by serving with your local volunteer fire company, but just don’t think you’re going to be able to run into burning buildings? Don’t worry. It’s a misconception that running into buildings is all we do. For every interior firefighter, there are several people working in support roles or behind the scenes, doing jobs that are equally necessary and important. There are service opportunities available for those of all ages (16 and up) and physical abilities.
Stop by the station and ask about membership opportunities.
We are there MOST Monday nights from 7-9 PM Or call 775-4430 and leave a message, we’ll set up a time that’s convenient for you.
