WHAT MAKES US TICK
No one can make us run into burning buildings and toward danger - we do it voluntarily! Are we crazy? Well, maybe a little. But there's so much more to it than the adrenaline rush.

“Volunteering is about being a part of something bigger than yourself. We come from a variety of backgrounds for a common purpose, to help someone in need”
“I enjoy the whole experience… the people especially, and working with them for the betterment of the community. I like helping people who are in immediate need, either fire or medical, or with disaster relief. I like the training, and the action of going on a call.”
“I like being an active member of the community and helping people. I don’t want my friends and neighbors wondering why no one showed up to put out their house fire.”
“Helping the community is my main reason that I volunteer. I live here and feel that I need to give back to the city I live in. But the extended family is pretty sweet too.”
“We are a group of folks that come together for a reason - to help make someone else's life a little better in a bad time. I love my job. It’s an adventure and it’s free training.”
