Our team consists of:

  • Fire Chief
  • Deputy Chief
  • 5 Captains
  • 4 Lieutenants
  • 16 Firefighters

The department responds to an average of 120 calls per year. A 6 person shift of firefighters are on-call from 7pm Thursday to 7pm the next Thursday. These personnel must stay within a certain area during those times to respond to any calls. In the case of a larger emergency, everyone would be called out to aid in the situation. All firefighters wear a pager 24/7 and also have a backup paging system on their cell phones.

In the case of an emergency, dial 911.
