Being Prepared with Continual Training

In case of a disaster of any magnitude we can be prepared with proper training!

Training for all volunteer Firefighters is on the 2nd Tuesday of each month at 10:00AM.

The First Responders Emergency Response Team trains the 3rd Tuesday of each month at 10:00AM. Medical emergency response training includes everything from CPR, how to respond to an injury, what to do if helicopter transport is needed, how to handle bee stings and how to use Automatic Electronic Defibrillation (AED) devices.

An “all-department” training scenario is generally scheduled for the 4th Tuesday of each month. This exercise includes Firefighters, First Responders as well as the volunteers for Logistics and Base operations.

Please feel free to attend any, or all, of these training opportunities. Increased community awareness of fire department operations is always welcome. Encourage your friends and neighbors to attend too!
