THE NATURE OF OUR BUSINESS

 

The fire and rescue service is one of the most diverse and challenging professions known today.  It is this diversity that inspires men and women to enter the service as volunteer firefighters.  All firefighters are trained to cope with situations that range from structure fires to motor vehicle accidents to hazardous chemical spills and almost every possible emergency situation in between.  We willingly volunteer these skills any time of day, seven days a week, in any kind of weather, and very often under emotional and potentially stressful circumstances.  These factors contribute to our profession being personally very rewarding.

 

Our primary goal is to serve and protect the public.  This is accomplished by preparing ourselves to control fire emergencies and at times to assist at other emergencies.  This is done through education, training, pre-incident planning, more training, state-of-the-art equipment and more training.

 

We have a job for everyone no matter what…everyone is important.  As a firefighter, you will be trained in first responding (medical assistance until the ambulance arrives), how to fight fire (forestry & structural), motor vehicle accidents, and other rescues.  We only ask that you do what you feel comfortable doing, whether that is going into a burning structure, support at a distance from a fire, CPR, extracting people from motor vehicle accidents or driving a truck.  There are always tasks that you can help with.  This business is not for everyone.  You need more that just a desire to help people.  You also need courage and dedication, assertiveness and a willingness to learn new skills and face new challenges.  Our service is one that calls on its members to perform hot, sweaty, dirty, strenuous work often in uncertain and hazardous environments, but we guarantee you will enjoy a rewarding experience.

 

The personal rewards and satisfaction received from the fire service are often beyond description.  There is a sense of accomplishment after controlling a building fire, joy and elevation when a child is rescued and compassion for accident victims.  The list is endless.

 

The bottom line in our business is measured by the best possible prevention and/or reduction of the loss of life, pain and suffering of people living in and driving through our community, and property damage we have prevented and reduced.  We exist and are prepared for one reason only: to provide our service to the community.  If you feel you have what it takes to meet the challenges of our business, we welcome you to join our fire company.  You will be responsible for the operation of equipment and apparatus.  We are interested in men and women over the ages of 15, who are in fairly good physical condition, and have the desire to participate as a team working towards a common goal ultimately resulting in a safer community.

 

We have many positions available with various levels of training:

  • Fire Fighter
  • Interior Fire Fighter
  • Driver/ Pump Operator
  • Rescue Fire Fighter
  • Scene Support
  • Business
  • Fundraising

You have the choice of putting in as much time and effort as you want, the more you put in the fire company the more you will gain back.  We let the individuals decide how much time they want to put into our company.  All we expect is that you attend as many calls and practices as you can to maintain and acceptable level of skill.  We will do our best to fit you in with whatever role you choose to pursue.
