We depend on the time and effort donated by our members to not only staff our duty crews during the time of an emergency, but also to perform all the other tasks involved in the successful operation of the Corps. Our volunteers are well trained and dedicated to helping others in the community, but we could always use additional help. We will provide all the necessary training free of charge. If you are a resident of Harrington Park, or live in an adjacent town please consider joining our squad.
