ACTIVE- All applicants over the age of eighteen (18) are eligible for Active Membership. Active members directly participate in emergency fire and rescue operations, and are given all required training. Active Members must also meet certain attendance requirements as determined by the Board of Directors.

STUDENT- All applicants under the age of eighteen (18), applicants who have not graduated high school, and full or part-time college students may elect to be Student Members. Student Members may be held exempt from some attendance requirements should their school activities conflict.

*** All Student Members under the age of eighteen (18) must also submit additional paperwork signed by a parent or legal guardian. This will be discussed during your interview. Members under the age of eighteen (18) also have significant operational limitations which are designed to minimize their risk exposure.

ASSOCIATE- Associate Membership is for those applicants who are not interested in directly participating in any emergency fire-rescue activities, but are interested in assisting the Department with fundraising, and community events. Associate Members do not receive any fire or EMS training, but enjoy all the same benefits of membership as Active Members.
