From The Chief
Chief James Walters
“We've gone from one volunteer station to a full-time paid agency with four engine companies, two truck companies, one squad company, four ambulances, and one battalion chief 24/7. We need apparatus that can take the lead on the more than 9,000 incidents we respond to each year."
