Our department is equipped to handle a variety of different types of rescues including but not limited to vehicle extrication, ice rescue, and water rescue. This is accomplished through specialized equipment and rigorous training.
Our department is equipped to respond to and identify various incidents involving hazardous materials. We have 3 members on the department who are certified at the HazMat-Technician Level.
All members of the department are capable of providing various levels of fire education to the community. We have a team of department members who operate our SAFE Program which is responsible for visiting different elementary schools in the community and provides education to students on Fire Safety.
In today's world, fire prevention is considered just as important, if not more important, than fire suppression. We have a dedicated Fire Prevention Officer who is responsible for enforcing fire code and conducting inspections along with a multitude of other responsibilities with the objective of preventing fires from occurring.
