Stations 272 and 261 are staffed by reserves.  Station 261 is a joint facility with the Rattlesnake Fire Protection District.

“It is through professionalism, dedication to duty, integrity and exceptional training that we endeavor to safeguard the lives and property of our citizens.”
-Division Chief, Heath Aldridge


Participation as a “reserve” member provides a sense of accomplishment you will not find anywhere else.  The self esteem and personal rewards gained by working as a team under difficult circumstances is a unique and distinctive experience.  Our department is well known regionally for our superior training programs and professionalism.   The prospect for advancement is real.  Over the last few years, many of our reserve members have been hired-on for career positions by EFPD and some of the largest fire departments in the state.  EFPD has also been known to provide the highest average test scores.
