Active Members

Active members participate directly in fire and rescue operations, including incident response and operation of apparatus and equipment. Men and women, ages 16 or older, that are in good physical condition and have the desire to participate in this capacity are eligible for active membership. Applicants under the age of 18 require parental consent. Once minimum training requirements have been met, an individual may continue to increase his/her level of participation by obtaining additional training through county and state programs. Members must serve one year of probation before receiving full “active” membership status.
