About Us

    We are your first responder in the event of a fire or other emergency. We have 5 fully equipped vehicles that stand ready to respond to brush fires, structure fires, floods, vehicle accidents, special rescues, and medical emergencies.

    Our service helps keep taxes down by eliminating the need for a paid fire department.

    New Engines!

    Our 20-year-old twin engines are due to be replaced in this year!

    Per National Fire Protection Act (NFPA) standards, fire apparatus should be retired at 20 years of age. Updating our apparatus ensures we are always in-service and able to respond to emergencies quickly and with the best life-saving technology.

    In 2023, just one new engine costs around $1,000,000.

    Annual Safety  Update

    Each year, we spend between $30,000 to $40,000 to upgrade, replace, repair, and test our life-saving rescue equipment. We spend another $20,000 to $30,000 of money we receive from grants doing the same thing! Properly working, up-to-date equipment is crucial for us to be able to do our jobs.

    In 2023 we spent $373K alone just on maintaining our aparatus & equipment.
