Our strength lies in the training and preparedness our emergency
service team strives to provide. In the ten years between 1990
and 2000 our call volume grew by 36%. In 2001 we logged more than
16,000 calls along with managing eighty-six training classes benefiting
over 1,000 emergency service members.
As part of our team you will experience:
- challenge, achievement and reward
- self-satisfaction and personal growth
- teamwork, camaraderie and fellowship

Volunteering initiates the development of emergency service skills
and education. Our team of twelve fire stations and four rescue
squads is welcoming new members.
There are many ways to enjoy serving on our team. You may become
a Emergency Medical Technician, a Paramedic, or a Firefighter.
Don't let our name fool you - while we encourage "cross training"
whenever possible, we still welcome volunteer members with specific
interests in fire suppression or patient care. We also value help
in office or record keeping tasks. Our auxiliary and support services
personnel help with everything from data entry and information
technology to hospitality and public relations.
