Our department provides three divisions of emergency services, Fire, Fire Police, and Emergency Medical Services (EMS). All divisions are lead by the Chief. Members can be active in any of the divisions. Membership requirements vary between the divisions. For more details, stop by on a Monday night we are always looking for more volunteers!
