We are your neighbors, wives, brothers, fathers, husbands, sisters, daughters, sons and friends. We are the men and women who put on a uniform each and every day to do what we can to ensure the safety of those around us and the environment that we live in. We don't do it for glory, we don't do it for ourselves, we do it for you and our children. We aim to make our community as safe as it can possibly be and we vow to be there to help make your nightmare end in the worst case scenarios. 

We are active learners. We are vigorous in our training. We are a team of individuals who partner together for a common purpose. We purse safety and peace of mind for all. We are educators. We are listeners. We are the phone call you don't want to make but who promise to always be there in your time of need. 

During the last year, our firefighters went on 1,724 service calls, where 1,270 calls were EMS related and 454 calls were fire related. A goal of Fire Chieft John Dunning is to have the vast majority of all personnel certified as an EMT to ensure the best possible care to our citizens. The average response time for 2018 was 4 minutes and 28 seconds from time of call to arrival on scene, which is better than the state average.
