Mission Statement

The mission of the Fire and Rescue Project is to increase community outreach and improve training, recruitment, and purchasing.

Problem Statement

Volunteer firefighters are our communities' first line of defense against fires, medical emergencies, chemical, biological, and terrorist threats, hazardous materials incidents, and trench collapses. They also provide high and low angle and other types of specialized rescues. Over the past twenty years, the number of emergency calls has increased dramatically along with the training requirements necessary to keep pace with expanding responsibilities. Volunteer fire and rescue departments are having increasing difficulty raising sufficient funds to keep pace with the cost of training and equipment necessary to meet the expanded range of emergencies to which communities expect them to respond. In addition, recruitment and retention are becoming serious problems. Since the early 1980s, the number of volunteer firefighters has decreased by almost 10%, while the number of calls to which they respond and the type of emergencies has increased dramatically.
