Active Membership


"The time you give can save a life!"
- Elizabeth Bradish


Active Members respond to emergency calls to provide fire, rescue, and medical services. They also help alongside Associate Members in non-emergency operations of the fire department.

No prior experience in emergency services is required! Aetna can and will train you in multiple skills, including firefighting, EMS, vehicle rescue, hazardous materials, and CPR. Volunteers will also be provided with bunker gear and firefighting equipment at no cost.
