Serving Our Community
Today, the demands on the emergency services have never been greater. Fire and EMS departments face increasing challenges ranging from global terrorism and hazardous materials threats to increased call volume and more diverse populations adding new needs and communications challenges. All these efforts take place against a backdrop of shrinking budgets and limited resources.
Fortunately, community volunteerism is on the rise, and capitalizing on that interest allows local emergency organizations to supplement and enhance the services they provide. Having residents volunteer to perform non-emergency tasks for a department allows responders to focus more on training, preparing for, and responding to emergencies while at the same time creating a critical connection between the department and the community.
