Every year, property owners, neighbors, friends and family are asked to support their local Volunteer Fire Department with the Annual Donation Drive for New and Active Membership. Our Requests are minimal for the important services provided to the community and provide district residents the privilege to vote for board members of our Fire Department. Annual Donations are $5.00 per person or $20.00 for a family of four or more, but we gladly accept donations of any amount and these are greatly appreciated. Our Fire Department depends on the support from the community to operate an is not funded by ESD taxes. It becomes more of a challenge each year to meet the demands of the growth of our community, the cost of fuel, utilities, etc. and it becomes more important each year that every resident/property owner support your local Volunteer Fire Department.

Our department currently has 10 Volunteer Firefighters who have given countless hours in the past year to keep you, your loved ones, and your property safe. This group of volunteers serves us to the best of their abilities. We are continuously updating equipment and training to better serve the community safely and efficiently. In addition to incident response, there are countless hours involved in maintaining and upgrading the department's trucks, buildings, equipment, training, and preparing for our Annual Bazaar, Annual Christmas Party, special events, etc. Through your continued support, we maintain one of the
