Virtual Fire Safety Education for Schools:

UMT Fire Companies could not teach Fire Safety in person to students, and instead, provided a virtual Fire Safety Educational Image to each school.

GET INVOLVED! All three fire companies, being volunteer organizations, are always looking for great individuals who are hoping to make a positive difference in their community. There are so many ways to volunteer besides being a Firefighter! Along with serving our citizens and businesses for several decades, each are also very active in the community and play an important role in the social and fundraising activities happening throughout the calendar year!
