The district is governed by an elected board of three commissioners. The board has moved us forward, with a planned organizational model projected out to 2018. The desired organizational model has a built-in objective of four on-duty personnel, around the clock.
District staffing consists of five career staff (Chief, HR, two District Chiefs, and a LT.) and approximately 25 volunteers (fire officers, firefighters, support,) with the planned expansion. We operate seven stations, nine fire apparatus-structural and wildland, and two BLS ambulances. We protect 52 square miles with a liberal mutual aid agreement with area agencies.
