Who We Are - About Us

 

The Aumsville Rural Fire Protection District was formed in 1942 and contracted with City of Aumsville for protection services. In 1947, a Special Election was held to seek approval for General Obligation Bonds in the amount of $10,000. The money was used to purchase new fire equipment and a Diamond T Pumper. The Bonds were paid off in ten years.

 

Aumsville Fire District encompasses 24.4 square miles with an approximate population of 6200 full time residents.  Aumsville has a main station and one satellite station where additional apparatus is located. Our firefighting apparatus includes: three engines, two tenders, and two brush trucks. In 2016, we replaced the three engines and two brush trucks with 2 Type 1 Engines and two Type 3 Brush trucks with our 2014 Bond.

Our substation is located 2.8 miles north east of Aumsville in the community of Shaw. The Shaw Station will be the home of our training center. The station is set up for rural water supply to assist with structural, wildland and brush fires. The station has an engine, tender and brush truck.

We are an independent Special Service District governed by a Board of Directors consisting of five members of the community elected by the citizens of the District. The Board holds regular Board meetings on the second Thursday of each month at the Aumsville Station; members of the public are always welcome to attend these meetings.

Firefighting

Our volunteer firefighter provides fire protection, rescue and medical response. They support state firefighting crews combating state and local wildland fires. They work closely with other public safety agencies to provide assistance and are experienced in disaster rescue.

Support Team

The District Link Support Team is our greatest connection to the community. Their main purpose is to support the firefighter on scene; however, our group organizes the blood drives, the giving tree, and many other community functions.

Expectation

The volunteer is a trained and respected professional who is expected to work and act in a professional manner while serving their community. The District offers a few ways to volunteer, as a member of our District Link Support Team or as a volunteer firefighter. To become a volunteer complete the application and bring it to the station during business hours.

Tender Driver

The Tender Driver Program was started with the more mature driver in mind. Many of the areas that we protect must have water shuttled to the scene. The tender driver gets the water to the scene and allows all firefighting resources to stay on the scene.
