What We Do

With our core of 80 to 90 volunteer firefighters, we respond to between 850 and 1100 calls for service each year. Although we never know exactly what to expect, we must always be prepared.

An average year may include:

  • Extricating approximately 10 people from vehicles
  • Extinguishing at least 30 structure fires
  • Assisting the town Rescue at medical calls on demand
  • Saving people’s lives
