Besides serving on the Fire Department and being available for fire alls, these guys also go above and beyond to respond to ambulance calls to help when needed. Kuddos to you for your dedication to our community. More fire department volunteers are needed. This takes dedication and training to become a firefighter.October 10, 2018 6 a.m. read more..
