MY volunteer department: Its unique, all our trucks are donated so they have been already used our equipment is also donated so its already. But we try to work hard with what we have and with the little that we have we have a great station and our department is always saving lievs and properties.

Our Dist is fairly large we cover around 200 square miles, have 1 Chief , 2 Asst. Chiefs, one of our Asst. Chiefs is also our training officer, and we have around 11 Firefighters. We have one main engine, one backup engine/extrication, one 4000 gal tender, one 2000 gal tender, and two brush trucks. We have the new Drager scbas and we have some of the newest in holmatro extrication equip. Our calls so far have been few for it has been a slow couple of fire seasons. We train twice some times three times a month, we have a very good mutual aid response, so we do get help when needed and help out other Dept. when needed. The town we are based in does not have a Firedept, so we are contracted to respond to fires within the city limits. We are currently trying to get a new station built, but you know how it is, all the red tape and the big one money.
1 engine, 2000 gallon tanker, grass truck and 2 rescue squads. we also have a 1959 engine that we still have in service that goes to ponds and field fires. it will get retired when we get are new engine in the fall.
