How Can I Help?

    You may not want to go into a burning building(or you may want to), but there are plenty of other helpful things that we need. Very little of our time is spent extinguishing fires. We spend a lot of time training and providing other services to the community that most any one can help with. We have a good time, make some good friends and meet those in the community.

However, some background training is required to be an Active Member, or one show can respond to emergencies. Most training classes are paid for by the department. After some basic skills training and administration, members are ready to start with Fire Fighter 1 or Emergency Medical Technician. Both of these are about 3 months long, usually one night a week and the occasional Saturday. We have plenty of members who have the experience, knowledge, and desire to help you with your skills and knowledge on these, with someone available at any time.

80% of our calls are medical responses. Medical calls can range from a neighbor having trouble standing up to a child with their finger stuck in a fan to another neighbor's heart stopping. The faster a trained medical responder is on the scene, the more likely the patient is to recover with little permanent damage. An Emergency Medical Technician or Medical Response Technician arriving on the scene in minutes can be all the difference in the world! There is nothing better than seeing your patient smiling and feeling better. These classes are all provided to you by the department. With a little practice and studying, most people have little problem passing these classes.

Below are some examples of jobs you might be able to help with. They are broken up into 2 categories; during incidents or calls, and other events.
