We are volunteers

-

 

Our department is made up completely of volunteers. In the United States, about 70% of firefighters are volunteer and appropriately 85% of departments are all or partially volunteer. These volunteers take time away from their loved-ones and careers to help their neighbors in times of need.

The members of Lewis Township Fire and Rescue are individuals of varying backgrounds and experiences who have come  together as a family to serve our community.
