Thank you for hosting! ... See MoreSee Less

We mourn the passing of MCFRS FF Lux, who just in the last year had completed her probationary training on the dayside shift at Station 5.It is with profound sadness that we mourn the sudden passing of active member Sister Brienna Lux. Sister Lux was a fire fighter assigned to daywork at Rescue Company 2. She is survived by three children. Additional details will be forthcoming.

Please take care of yourselves and each other. We are accustomed to always helping others. Sometimes we need to help ourselves. That help is only a phone call, text or conversation away.

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.
