For starters I think the use of web sites by volunteer departments is a terrific idea. I have just completed a class about web site designing/building (and I learned alot, I would recommend taking one if your interested in making web site, there are numerous books on the subject, but being able to ask questions makes a big difference.)
The first thing you need do decide when designing a website for your department (and this is only my opinion) is decide who is the target audiance (other emergency providers or the general public) what do you want to tell the viewer.
Also remmeber that load time is important to many internet uses (think about yourself, do you like having to wait a long time for large images to load? Not me.)

Definetely define your audience. Don't crowd your site with large pictures. Remember to seperate your page into many chapters and add a navigation page for ease of use. Go ahead and check out this site I created for a small volunteer department in Illinois.
