Get to Know Us...

Then come join us!



Volunteers account for almost 75% of firefighters in the United States.  You can join this noble tradition of service in your community - no experience required. 


Today's firefighter is not a one-dimensional character. We respond to emergencies of all types, and take part in community activities alongside the auxiliary.  We are anywhere our friends and neighbors need help.



You don't have to run into a burning building or jump on a rescue to be part of the this department!  There are many jobs needed to make our fire department run smoothly. Whether you're an accountant, a grocery clerk, a construction worker, or a retiree - we've got a job for you!
