Join Us

Since 1913, We have been committed to protecting, serving, and supporting the Village of Minoa & Neighboring areas.

The volunteer members are passionate about serving our community and have been essential in accomplishing the mission, ensuring first responder units are ready and capable of delivering emergency aid. We pride ourselves on being prepared to mobilize and respond rapidly with the right capabilities to support the needs of our community anytime, anywhere.
