We have boosted our roster to 30 members with 26 of those trained as Firefighter / EMT / Medics.
Members have attended several additional training classes, going above the state requirements, Some of those trainings were a 40-hour hazardous materials technician course, 80-hour certified fire inspector course and 16-hour driver instructor course, just to name a few. This was done by the members on their off time to better the service level provided to the residents of and visitors to the district.
