Frequently Asked Questions
None of us started as firefighters or EMTs either – and except for a small number of our EMTs who are career professionals, we all hold other jobs or household responsibilities while volunteering as professional firefighters and emergency medical professionals.
Whether you’re fresh out of high school, a CEO, a farmer, a salesperson, a line cook, a business owner, retiree, or a stay at home parent – we welcome you to continue those endeavors and join us as a firefighter or EMT. We’ll take you through training and continuing education.
Some of our current and former members are also career professional firefighters and paramedics at other agencies. Volunteering with us can be a great way to start yourself on a fire service career path if that interests you.
We offer CPR classes throughout the year for everyone who is roughly middle-school age and up… whether you want to learn or recertify because you are a daycare provider, teacher, babysitter, or just a caring neighbor and family member who wants to be prepared, we’ll teach you.
