A video from a few months ago showing what it looks like when the men staffing the firehouse enjoying some down time in the recliners are alerted for a house fire.
These volunteers are made up of live-in members as well as regular active members who dedicate many hours a week being on station (staffing) and ready to respond to an incident. This fast response shown in the video from members on station has resulted in multiple lives saved over the last 50 years and is part of the Pride of Progress.
If you are interested in joining or becoming a live-in, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your contact info and your interest. ... See MoreSee Less

Command requested a County Engine and Truck to assist the city units with manpower. Truck 32 worked in a end unit of a another detached row where radiant heat started another fire on the first floor.
