The Difference

Not just a fire
department a team.

In the fire services your life often depends on members of your team, this environment naturally fosters a sense of camaraderie and teamwork. Our department builds on this natural environment of teamwork though training, leadership and mentorship. Senior members of the department work with new recruits to properly instruct them to safely and effectively become a firefighter. We are a diverse group of people from all walks of life, united by a common struggle in service to our community. We’re not just a fire department, we’re family.

Firefighting

Firefighting requires a basic set of training, after that we encourage our volunteers to seek out specializations of their own choosing (Swift Water Rescue Team, Ice Recue Team, Low to Medium Angle Rescue, Hazmat Technician ect)

Leadership

Our officers are required to meet the high standards set by FEMA, qualifiers include ICS 400 Certified and maintain 40 hours of training per-year 20 of which are in personnel management. For more information contact us today.

Technical Skills

It’s not just firefighting, we need individuals to drive trucks, operate equipment, extricate patients and manage traffic.

 

More Than
Fire Fighting.

There are many ways to serve your community though SBFPD, we are always in need of on scene support personnel. Additionally people with clerical skills, mechanical skills, construction skills, and grant writing, are critical to the continued operation of our district.
