The Villages of Chauvin, Edgerton and Irma each have volunteer fire departments, consisting of dedicated individuals from the community. Training for the individuals is provided as much as possible, and residents are encouraged to join and become a volunteer fire fighter for their village.

The dedicated members of the fire departments are able to respond to incidents twenty-four hours a day from their homes or work. Although the members are classed as volunteers, these men and women are trained to respond and assist in case of emergency.

If you are interested in becoming a member of the Fire Department for your community, contact your Fire Chief.
