“I think a hero is an ordinary individual who finds strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles.”Christopher Reeve.
The volunteer emergency services are a long standing tradition in the United States and in Minocqua that often encompass generations of family members, local businessmen and women. Unfortunately, it is also tradition in danger! Many fire departments across the country as well as the town of Minocqua are experiencing more difficulty with recruiting and retaining members now than in any time in past.
Volunteer fire departments depend on local community residents to volunteer their time and to give back through service to their community. There is no better or more rewarding way to volunteer your time than as a firefighter in your local community.
The Minocqua Volunteer Fire and Rescue Department needs community members to join the fire department. We are looking for volunteers between the ages of 18 and 70. Even if you don’t want to be a firefighter, there are other “jobs” within the fire department where your service would be beneficial.
