Dear Friend and Neighbor,

The overwhelming majority of our funding comes from community donations. We do not solicit by phone, only by an annual mailout campaign. We are now able to receive donations electronically via PayPal. Anyone with an email address can use this service at anytime during the year.

Your donations are instrumental in providing quality training and safety equipment for our members. As a fully 100% volunteer department, no member receives any payment for his or her services. Our program is set up to maximize the benefit from community donations. We purchase only essential equipment and supplies, while maintaining strict National Fire Protection Association ( safety standards.

Please direct any concerns, questions or comments to Chief Joe Parks via email at:

Thank you!
