The Springwater Fire Department is staff by 100% volunteers who live in our town. They are just like you, with a full time job, family and other commitments. We volunteer to give back to our community. We urge you to join us and help us help our neighbors. Training is not only received through specialized classes but at our weekly drills. Drills consist of Fire and EMS based training that people will benefit from and learn. This gives the active members a time to become familiar with the apparatus and tools. Some drills include EMS skills, Fire Drills, Water rescue, Rope Rescue, & SCBA. Drills are held the 2nd and 3rd Wednesday of the month and our Monthly department meetings are held the 1st Wednesday.Anyone is invited to come down and visit, get an application or check out the hall. There is always people available on Wednesday nights to answer any questions or to give a tour of our facility.
