The cornerstone of our department is not the fire engines, the fire hoses, the medical equipment, or the station. It*s the members. Thanks to the advanced training and efforts of these volunteer firefighters, the department has been able to focus on improving and expanding upon the traditional Fire Protection services of the past, and evolving into an outstanding fire fighting organization that can be called upon for a wide variety of emergency situations.

Their dedication and sacrifice is exemplary and is what makes this department great.
