We strive to minimize suffering, loss of life, and loss of property incurred by fire, accidents, disasters, and medical emergencies. Our goal is to provide the best possible emergency services to our community as well as the surrounding area through, education, fire prevention, and the response of highly trained fire and emergency personnel.

Today, we have 36 full-time employees along with about 20 volunteers. We have three stations staffed 24/7 along with four fully staffed advanced life support (ALS) ambulances.
