The firefighters supported by NSCFPD are all volunteer. Our volunteers are of many ages (most older than you might think), from many different backgrounds and professions. The things that we have in common are a desire to help our neighbors in times of need and a passion for learning and then using the skills required to perform emergency service, as part of a dedicated team.
The Volunteer Fire Department is led by Fire Chief Bonnie Plakos and Assistant Fire Chief Chris Aitchison, along with Fire Captains Dave Pelzer, Chuck Breier, and Paul Plakos. At present we have 16 active firefighters, including the officers, and 4 "support" members (who provide non-firefighting tasks to the department). We are always looking for more colleagues!
