essential fire and rescue equipment. Each of our Firefighters carries a
voice pager, when a call for the fire department is made, Central Dispatch
sends out a tone via radio, specific to our pagers, that activates a voice
pager, then the voice message of the emergency and it's location is heard.
Depending on the location of the emergency, some firefighters will respond
to the incident from wherever they may be, to initiate immediate emergency
action, while others will respond to the station to pick up and respond with
the necessary equipment. As volunteers we are on call 24 hours a day and
respond whenever needed and available. This is a commitment we have made to
the service of our community. We provides the same quality of service that
you may receive from a full time Fire department. All of our personnel meet
