We will be responsive to the needs of our citizens by providing rapid, professional, humanitarian services essential to the health, safety, and well-being of the community.
We will accomplish our mission through prevention, fire suppression, emergency medical services, hazard mitigation, and other related emergency and non-emergency activities.
We will actively participate in our community, serve as role models and strive to effectively utilize all of the necessary resources available to provide a service deemed excellent by our citizens.”
Being a member of the Sorrento Volunteer Fire Department has a different meaning for each person in our family but for most is means dedication to the community we live in. As both a group and individually we strive to provide the best customer service we can. With that we invite individuals to become a member of our family. Anyone can be an associate, active, or junior member.
Non responders assist the organization with fundraisers, building and vehicle maintenance, hydrant flow test, hose testing, conducting pre incident plans, monthly meetings, and office work.
Members of the department that respond to emergency and non-emergency incidents. Members are trained in firefighting, emergency medical care, hazardous materials response, vehicle extrication and disaster response. We have some members that only participate in the medical responses but still respond to structure fires in case of an injury and to work in our rehabilitation area. Some members may desire to assist by providing traffic control at incidents and not participating in the actual mitigation. Any level of response can be utilized.
Students ages 14 to 17 years of age wishing to obtain some skills training in emergency response while attending school. They will receive training in firefighting and medical emergency response. Juniors are allowed to respond to calls on a limited basis with their parents or guardians permission. Juniors are under no circumstances are exposed to situations involving severe trauma, deaths, drug and alcohol related situations, or hazardous materials. It's our goal to train and prepare young people for careers in emergency services and hopefully to continue to volunteer for their local department as they continue on in life.
