Volunteer Fire & Rescue

We work in partnership with the county’s career firefighters and emergency medical technicians and receive the same level of training and equipment.

Our county is very diverse with a growing multicultural population, and includes rural, suburban and urban areas. Our challenge is to serve these areas with the best volunteers our county has to offer. And that’s where you come in!
