Not all members fight fires. If you want to be an important and contributing member of your community but do not wish to enter a burning building, we are still looking to hear from you! Many members respond to non-fire emergencies like medical emergencies and motor vehicle accidents exclusively. Some may choose to respond to all calls, but limit activities they are not comfortable with such as not wearing breathing apparatus or not climbing ladders. These folks also take part in any community events and fundraising activities we embark upon.
