Last Year Your Support Enabled

Thanks to generous donors large and small we used every cent last year to advance our equipment, people, and mission.

Your donations allowed us to train virtually during COVID, host socially-distanced yet hands-on trainings taught by nationally-respected fire instructors. We began plans for a future renovation of our fire station, replaced an aging Chief's vehicle, and began issuing new - significantly more advanced - radios to members.

  • Reduced alarm response time. While we have led the town in fastest alarm response time for years, we constantly strive to improve. Knowing a fire can double in size every 30 seconds, we believe a safe and efficient response is critical to life safety. In 2019-2020, we responded over 50 seconds faster than the NFPA's standard, again besting many of our peers regionally, including those with full-time staff.
  • Upgraded 30% of our radios.
  • Upgraded failing equipment.
  • Updated air packs.

Your Donations This Year

This year, with your help, we hope to further advance our capabilities, training, fleet of fire trucks, equipment, and upgrade our fire station. Our goals are not small, but neither is our mission. With your help, it is possible.

  • Updating of SCBA / air packs.
  • Replace air pack / air cylinder filling station.
