For a grand Total of 765 calls for service. Not the record but certainly notable! That's a total of about 2611 man hours! Our vehicles were driven a total of 34,387 miles during the 2019 response year. That's almost one and a quarter times if you drove around the earth's equator. 

 

Certainly impressive numbers and the firefighters have worked incredibly hard. We thank all of them for there hard work and dedication for it does not go unnoticed. We also want to thank our wonderful community members for the continued support.

Our department is also growing in numbers as we have added several new volunteers and paid staff last year. Our ambulance is now full time staffed at a Paramedic Level. This occured as of November 1st, 2016 and 2017 welcomed our first full year as a Paramedic department. Thank you to everyone who has helped make this full time transition possible! With wintery weather around this time of year please remember to drive safe on the roadways. Accidents on ICY road kill atleast twice the number of people every year that all other Natural disasters( Hurricanes, tornadoes, Floods, etc) do. Please be safe.

 

Please keep your family safe by TESTING YOUR SMOKE ALARMS MONTHLY!
