Fire protection in rural county areas are provided by a fully volunteer force of professional firefighters who have trained and work together to provide the very best fire service available at any given time. A portion of our stations are staffed with Resident Firefighters who live at the fire station and provide a minimum of 70 hours per week of station hour response availability. Many stations also have bed-halls available for additional volunteer professionals to spend available nights to answer calls for service.
