Equipment and Operations:
The department currently has two pumpers and one rescue vehicle. The department responds to approximately 20 calls per year involving emergency and non-emergency public assists.
The duties include fire suppression, equipment testing and inspection, rescues, fire safety and many other types of public assists.
Our volunteer fire fighters meet bi-weekly to attend training sessions conducted by fellow volunteers or fire certified personnel. They participate in classroom and hands-on sessions involving SCBA’s, pump operations, rescue and fire suppression.
The fire department recognizes that training is a vital part of being a volunteer firefighter. We assist and encourage volunteers to attend additional training. They are given the opportunity to attend Texas A & M Fire School, which allows them to observe and participate in learning experiences that they then can apply to their own department.
