The fire fighters and officers at the department are committed to continually train and practice in all aspects of fire suppression and rescue. The members practice all the fundamentals so they can efficiently and rapidly extinguish, control or extricate any situation. They are also a big part of the community, assisting with fundraising, food bank drives, MD boot drive and countless other organizations that can use their help.
