When your neighbor calls you for help you would run right over and help. So what if we give you a little training and some equipment to use, along with a way to notify you anytime that one of your neighbors needs your help. Neighbors helping Neighbors

Our volunteer division has volunteers throughout our district, who can get to a call quicker than the station crew and begin providing services as needed.

Currently, we are specifically looking for volunteers interested in training for wild-land fire and medical calls. We will provide you with with everything you need to volunteer including training, equipment, PPE, etc. We also offer an amazing fire department “family”.

We know that volunteering with a fire department requires a certain level of time commitment and we also know that the community in which we live in needs volunteers to provide first responder services. We need your help to be able to get to a call in first, give us a report of what is happening, and to begin helping the situation within your level of training.

Please read about our volunteer positions and let us know if any of them spark an interest in you. Contact Scot Davis, BN Chief/Volunteer Coordinator and we will set up a time to meet and tour a station. I look forward to hearing from you!!
