The answer, of course, is: "A lot."

 

Volunteer firefighters protect our community in more ways than one. Volunteer firefighters obviously help to extinguish and prevent fires and other emergencies, but they also strengthen our community by providing a source of civic pride and by tying residents together in ways that wouldn't otherwise be possible.

 

And volunteer firefighters help keep property taxes lower, too. Paid firefighters are effective, of course, but their costs are added directly to tax bills. Volunteer firefighters keep property tax bills down - which is great for residents, businesses, and our community's growth.

 

When you consider the benefits to both you and our community, we think you'll find volunteer firefighting to be worthwhile indeed. Download your application now.
