Resident Firefighters are asked to give the department a two-year commitment. The reason for the commitment is related to the cost and time required to have each Resident Firefighter trained to perform the duties that are required. If for some reason you cannot achieve this, you could be responsible to repay the department for related costs.
Housing Resident Firefighters
The department is currently equipped to house six Resident Firefighters. Privacy is limited as all Resident Firefighters and career staff share common areas and a common sleeping area. The fire station is a public building, which brings in meetings and station tours from time to time. The ability to coexist with others is an important part of being a Resident Firefighter.
