Today, the department consists of Michael Linton as Fire Chief, and local volunteer personnel. There are two stations, with the latest technology both WI FI and satellite connectivity and emergency generator power supply should land based communications and power fail. There is a Type III 1998 International Model 15 Brush Engine, A Type IV Ford F-550 with 4 wheel drive capabilities with standard fire suppression equipment.

The Department, like most today in the United States, is a non profit organization and maintains equipment and supplies through donations and grants that have to stretched to cover ever increasing costs. We are gracious to accept any donation to the department, and deeply appreciate all the help we have received over the years. We again applaud our volunteers, the men and women who sacrifice so much for our protection.
