We respond to approximately 430 calls for emergency services annually. The majority of our 911 calls are Emergency Medical Services (EMS) related. EMS calls account for 65-70% of our annual call load. Sometimes these are medical calls, but some also include motor vehicle accidents, backcountry rescue (lost or injured individuals), and carbon monoxide poisoning from defective furnace piping. We also respond to structure and wildland fires, non-injury car accidents, extinguish many abandoned campfires, and respond to various odor or potentially hazardous leak situations.
If you dial 911, and the situation does not exclusively deal with a law enforcement issue, we will likely respond to assist. Additionally, we provide fire safety education to ~200 children annually as well as providing fire inspections/permits and other public safety functions.
