With 2016 in the books, Station 4 wrapped up our busiest year to date. We finished with 786 fire calls and 3,717 EMS calls.

What is more special is that these trucks are staffed with highly trained volunteers who give up family time to train and respond.
Our members come from all backgrounds and at anytime during the day or night you can walk in and see several students, retirees, nurses, engineers, doctors, construction workers, pharmacists, landscapers, and police officers all coming together and donating time for the good of our cause.
