Volunteer Firefighter/EMT’s spend considerable personal time each year training for and responding to emergency incidents. These friends and neighbors drop whatever they’re doing — night or day, holiday’s, bad weather or good — to respond to the community’s emergencies. It’s reassuring to know when you or a loved one is having a medical emergency; is in a car wreck, or your house is on fire, that trained, experienced, volunteer emergency responders will be there in a matter of minutes.
Take advantage of our big summer events, like the Fire Department Open House/Pancake Breakfast and the Once Around Lake Cavanaugh Fun Run. This is a great time to meet Fire Department members and check out our outstanding equipment.
Consider volunteering for the Lake Cavanaugh Fire Department. It’s rewarding and doesn’t take as much time as you think. Not everyone has to carry a fire hose into a burning house; anyone over 18 can contribute to the emergency response effort. Please stop by the Lake Cavanaugh Fire Station during one of our drill nights at 6:00 or feel free to Scott Lemke anytime.
