The district

The Fire District operates on an appropriated tax income base of $14,500, cash donations and fundraiser activities put on by the firefighters and local residents through the Volunteer Firefighter’s Association.

 

THE FIRE STATION

Our fire station houses a Class A Fire Engine, two Water Tenders, two Wild Land Brush Engines and a Rescue Vehicle. While we train both for fire and medical emergencies, approximately 94% of our calls relate to medical emergencies and trauma.
