We are an all-volunteer organization made up of highly trained, dedicated and caring people. Our volunteers fulfill various roles in the organization; most serve as firefighters, but others are special fire police, and some serve in administrative positions. Our members come from many diverse backgrounds with one common desire – to help others.
