With your successful support, you can use your participation as a job reference, resume builder, and receive letters of recommendation.
Firefighters and Emergency Medical Technicians
Expand your horizons, your sense of community, and your job skills. Experience is not required, as we will provide you with all necessary training. Responders need not be available during the day (though it does help), and all training is scheduled to accommodate the working person’s schedule.
Respond to a variety of emergency calls. Receive full training and all equipment at the Department’s expense. We need people who are willing to make a long-term commitment to the Department and the community, whose hearts beat a little faster at the sound of a siren, and who desire to do something a bit out of the ordinary with their lives.
