Probationary Requirements:

While we are a volunteer company and understand that life does happen, these are the requirements on which we will decide if you will become a full member and if you do not feel you can meet these requirements at this time, we would be happy to welcome your application at a future date.

  • 20 hours of in-station time per month while on probation. Time spent in EMT/FF1 class DOES NOT count towards this requirement.
