Millions of kids dream of becoming a firefighter when they grow up. However, not as many actually do. If you still have dreams of fighting fires and protecting your community, becoming a volunteer firefighter might be the right path for you.

Becoming a volunteer firefighter requires extensive training, hard work and dedication to the community. Communities, towns and cities rely on volunteer firefighters to respond quickly to emergencies, to perform firefighting duties and to provide assistance to the ones in need. The chance to aid and serve the community is an extremely rewarding experience.

Be aware that volunteer firefighting can be a dangerous job that requires facing life or death situations. You should be able to stay calm, cool and collected in the heat of the moment.

If you are intrested in becoming a Volunteer Firefighter please contact us for membership information. You can call our office or stop by the station. A great time to stop by would be one of our meeting or drill nights. We meet every thursday night at 7pm.
