How to Join

Many people see firefighting from the aspect of responding to fires on big, shiny fire engines, and rescuing people from burning buildings. The truth is that while those things happen occasionally, the job is more about the preparation for those events. Firefighters have a responsibility to not just fight fires, but to take care of the tools, equipment, apparatus, and station.

We are always accepting applications for new members. No prior training is required. Applicants must be at least 18 years of age, have a valid driver's license, and reside within five minutes of the fire station.

All applicants will go through an interview process, and undergo a criminal background check. If you are interested in joining the department, you can visit our office at 119 Elm Street.
