Fighting fires is only part of what our Fire Department does to serve residents. In addition to loss prevention, firefighters also conduct fire inspections, safety classes, and car seat installations. The Fire Department currently has 8 full-time firefighters that work on a regular 24 on 48 off schedule, 15 paid volunteers and a full-time Fire Chief. Out of this manpower we have divided our men into three companies which respond to rescue incidents all over Clark County. Our rescues include auto extrication and river rescues.
There are also regular meetings for full-time and volunteer firemen held on the first and third Monday night of each month. Meetings start at 6:30 and last until 8:30.
