Four Communities Fire Dept has served their area since 1951. They need the support of the community with donations and volunteers to protect the area. I spent 20 years there a volunteer fire fighter and a board member. I had some of the most rewarding times of my life there. Wish I could still do it but can not because of health reasons but still support them and always will. Remember your life or your families may depend on on these dedicated VOLUNTEERS.

Four Communities Fire Dept has been protecting this area since the 1950's long before we had county fire stations. They continue to serve with out pay, putting in long hours, leaving their families to help others in time of need. I have seen first hand the great work they do fighting fires, responding to accidents and medical calls. They need all the community support that they can get. Many out here owe them for saving their property and their lives. There are true American Heroes that serve our area.
