287 R/C Fire and Rescue

Our Department takes care of 44,000 acres of Richland Chambers Reservoir. We are a all volunteer department staffed with 8 active firefighters, 1 EMT-B. We have acquired all our equipment from private donations and receive no county or state funding. We have acquired 3 Fire Trucks with equipment and a boat for lake rescue. We are proud of the strides our department has taken with no government assistance. We are building our first station at this time and expect it to be completed in June, 2006.
