    Default I just thought i would share this with everyone.





    This is a picture video of the history of our fire department. It kinda shows that there is more to what we do than fight fires, and shows how much things have changed over the years. Hope you enjoy it!

    Cool. I wasn't around for those days. We went away from the ambulance service in 1999 due missing alot of our calls. Through most of the 60's 70's and 80's alot of people would say we had the best ambulance service in the county, and were running two volunteer ambulances. We had a paid ambulance service in the county that entire time that handled all our transporting and we were just a first response EMS crew. That company moved out of the county in October, so we had to do something about it. We decided the best thing to do was go back to transporting. As of March 7th we have been transporting, with our brand new ambulance we scrapped up money for and brand new equipment for it which will hopefully be paid off with some grant money. We have run 5 calls. And its been really different. We are the only one's in the county that have gone back to transporting there are still some departments that rely on neighboring departments for transporting.
