The Department is always looking for new members, as the need for volunteers is constant. The initial training takes several hours and is very taxing to the body. The result is the ability to help your family, friends and neighbors in times of need. Anyone wishing to inquire about membership may contact any firefighter, speak to a department officer or come to the Fire Station and introduce himself or herself any Monday night at 7pm.
The Department appreciates the generous support of the community during their annual calendar drive, chicken barbeques, pancake breakfasts, and throughout the year.
