Because You Have More to Give
Our volunteer firefighters and emergency response team members come from all walks of life. Their education levels vary. Some are professionals in their respective fields. Some are devoted caretakers. We’ve welcomed retirees, parents, teachers, students, artists, managers, healthcare workers, business owners, and beyond. Their backgrounds and stories are all unique.
But one common idea brought them together—they had more to give to their community.

A Message from the Fire Department
“The fire and emergency medical service is some of the most diverse and challenging work available. This diversity attracts most men and women to join our ranks. People volunteer for different reasons.
Action-oriented people enjoy the excitement that emergency services has to offer. Some see the volunteer fire service as an alternative to ‘driving a desk by day’ – by allowing them to ‘drive a fire truck at night’. Others feel it’s their duty to serve the community. Whatever motivates you to volunteer – everyone gains the self-satisfaction of being at their best when they help people in their time of need.
Imagine having to prepare yourself for situations that range from structure fires to childbirth to hazardous chemical spills to heart attacks to almost any imaginable emergency in between. This diversity is coupled with the fact that these skills may be needed at any time of the day or night, seven days a week, in any kind of weather, and very often under potentially stressful and emotional circumstances. Yet these same factors contribute to our profession being so personally rewarding.
We realize firefighting & EMS is not for everyone, but we believe that volunteering can be. There is plenty of work to be done on or behind the scenes, too. The personal rewards and satisfaction received from what we do are often beyond description. There is a sense of accomplishment when you control a building fire, joy and elation when a child is born, compassion for accident victims, and fulfillment from teaching children fire safety.
Volunteering in emergency services is one of the most important decisions you may make. We hope that you give this decision the time and serious consideration it deserves and decide to join our ranks.”
