Firefighters

We are always looking to take new firefighters into the organization. Operational firefighters can be broken down into two categories; interior firefighters and exterior firefighters. Interior firefighters enter hazardous environments in order to mitigate the emergency. Some examples would be a house fire, building fire, carbon monoxide emergencies and various other hazardous situations. Exterior firefighters operate outside of the hazardous structure and/or hazardous environment. Some of the duties exterior firefighters perform include but are not limited to: setting up ladders, helping with hose lines, and retrieving tools from the apparatus.

Junior Members

Junior members are operational members ages 14-17. After the junior member completes the proper training required, he or she may then ride on apparatus to the scene of emergencies. Junior members are not allowed to enter any hazardous structure until the scene has been deemed safe by the Incident Commander. Junior members serve a vital part on the fireground and around the firehouse. Not only will junior members learn how to be a firefighter, but they also complete essential tasks at the scene of emergencies. Junior members are the future of our organization.

Fire Police

Our Fire Police keep our firefighters safe from traffic while we operate on the scene of an emergency. Fire Police close the roadway down and/or re-direct traffic away from the incident scene to ensure our safety. Fire Police work in conjunction with local Police Departments to manage traffic at the scene of emergencies.

Non-Operational Members

Non-Operational Members help out with fundraising, administrative tasks and community events, which may include bingos, gun drawings or helping with fire prevention activities at schools. This group consists of members who do not ride on the fire trucks or respond on emergencies but are just as vital to our organization as the firefighters. We are always looking for people to help us with fundraising, because without fundraising, there are no fire trucks on the street.
