We Have Everything but You!

We welcome trained and untrained applicants, from a variety of ages and backgrounds. Our company is an active and progressive company that has regularly scheduled, focused training. Being located in a college town, we also accept student applicants with previous fire and EMS experience. Our staffing is made up of male and female members as well as junior firefighters. In addition to daily staffing and responses we also operate a duty shift schedule on Saturdays and Sundays, and a live-in program. We are a diverse, growing community that has a lot to offer for anyone wanting to be a part of our family in either an operational or supporting role.
