All of our Fire Fighters are volunteers. They receive structured training at least twice a month. Have you considered joining the fire fighting team? Even if you have had no previous professional training, do not let that stop you. We offer structured professional training. Do not let health problems discourage you from participating. We are always in need of dedicated, willing volunteers. Call our Chief, Todd Watson at (573) 345-0788, and discuss the opportunities and your capabilities. He can answer all your questions.
Emergency Medical Services (First Responder)
The First Responders are volunteers as well. If you are interested in learning more about how you can help your fellow residents in emergency situations, call Todd Watson, 573-345-0788. The EMS personnel receive concentrated professional training prior to becoming a member of the team and also train twice each month.
READY IN 3
Emergencies can strike anytime. Do you have a plan for your family? If not, READY IN 3 can help you develop one. It’s an emergency preparedness program for Missouri. The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services sponsor’s the program.
READY IN 3 focuses on three steps you can take to prepare for many kinds of emergencies.
- Create a plan for you and your family. Do you and your children (grandchildren, guests) know what to do if a bad storm hits or fire breaks out? Where do they go if they have to evacuate the house/area?
- Prepare a kit for home, car and work.
- Listen for information about what to do and where to go during an actual emergency. Do you have a NOAA weather/hazard alert radio available? They broadcast up-to-date information on all emergencies that you can easily program to certain county areas.
