Lake Hills Volunteer Fire Department
Why We’re Saluting the Lake Hills Volunteer Fire Department
The volunteer firefighters at the Lake Hills Volunteer Fire Department believe in giving back to their community. The department, which consists of more than 30 volunteer firefighters, can be found going above and beyond by providing free smoke alarm testing in homes, giving free CPR classes and, of course, keeping the area safe by providing fire and EMS services.
Every year, they get involved in local events on top of their everyday operations. Each Halloween, the department patrols the area and passes out candy to children from the fire trucks. When the holidays roll around, they delight passerby when they drive with Santa Claus on the top of the truck. Additionally, they host an annual open house where the public can visit the station – and children can be “firefighters” for the day by taking fire truck rides.
According to the members of the Lake Hills Volunteer Fire Department, “There is no greater feeling than to be able to give back to the community. It is a good feeling when we are able to perform the extra activities and put a smile on someone’s face.”
