Your local fire department was established in 1948. There are usually 20-30 volunteers at any given time. The department offers much more than fire service to the community. Some of the members are Medical First Responders.


Also, our firefighters volunteer much of their personal time to many other causes with the community. 

Anyone interested in serving their community through the fire department please contact the Fire Chief for more information.
