Why I Joined Fire/EMS
Mitchell Fire Company is being founded in response to an important need--fire prevention and public education--in the underserved rural communities in east central Illinois. For many volunteer departments, a basic structural firefighting response is difficult to impossible, leaving them no capability for agressive and proactive fire prevention. In small towns, where stations are not staffed and most department members work in a city, by the time a fire is discovered it is usually too late to save a structure. This fact mandates the future emphasis on prevention in rural communities, especially since most volunteer departments are seeing a decline in membership. The best fire is the one the fire department never has to respond to.
