In 1985 Central Fire Department was then allowed to have a paid fire chief and 3 firefighter/operators.  That was one man per shift at station 31.

With the hard work and dedication of many volunteers in the past, our wonderful community is now protected by an amazing group of  firefighters.  These men work  rotations of 24 hour shifts at 5 different stations everyday of the year to be available when we need them.
