Vision, Mission & Values
To enhance and protect the safety and well-being of our community.
To save lives, protect property, and strengthen community relationships with professionalism, courage, and dedication.
Integrity – We are honest, trustworthy, and accountable. Honor guides our actions.
Professional – Professionalism is the culmination of competence, knowledge, resourcefulness, quality, attitude, and cooperation related to how we provide our services within the community and at all levels of the organization. This professionalism allows us to appropriately interface with each other and the public. Being professional also encapsulates the goal of doing right and being nice.
Respect – Valuing each other and acknowledging the diversity and worth that is inherent within all individuals.
Accountable – Being accountable to each other, to the organization, and to the citizens whom we serve is a fundamental value and will allow us to make the best decision: be it fiscal, procedural, ethical, or moral.
Teamwork – We each bring our own skills and experience, yet we recognize that we are better together. We support and depend on each other to achieve our goals —both as an organization and as individuals. Synergistic interactions are critical. This also includes communication, both vertically (up and down) and laterally.
Dedication – Dedication is a commitment not only to the duties of a firefighter, but also to each other as a team, to the citizens which we serve, and propels us forward in becoming the most competent professionals.
Courage – Courage and bravery are the foundations of our character. Bravery is the ability to overcome fear through fortitude, instinct, compassion for others, and training. Courage is the ability to act at all times with integrity and showing the fortitude to operate effectively under any condition.
