In light of our fire-house closing and the removal of equipment from the Westview station, I decided to post info on volunteering for fire dept to protect the community in the event of an emergency.

 

There are about 1.1 million firefighters in the United Sates. Three out of four — more than 800,000 in all — are volunteers, according to the National Volunteer Fire Council. The NVFC estimates that volunteer firefighters save this country $37 billion a year. In most communities, volunteers are our first line of defense in emergencies ranging from everyday accidents and fires to natural disasters and terrorist attacks.
