Why I Joined Fire/EMS
Because we live in the rural area, which is small with 650 people i felt it was my duty to give back to the community the best way i knew how.

To be able to help people and if the circumstances works out for them, then they are happy and i am satisfied that we were able to help.

Staff. We are a rural department and with all the education people need, it is hard to get people to join once they find out how many hours is needed.
