The Mtn. Home Fire / Rescue Department has 25 career firemen, 9 paid-per-call "volunteers", and 1 secretary. The career personnel are split into 3 shifts, A B C, with each shift working 24 hours on and 48 hours off. Each shift is made up of 1 Captain, 2 Lieutenants, and 4 or 5 firefighters. All career personnel are trained in 1st aid techniques, with 22 career personnel being EMT-B certified and 3 being AED 1st Responders.
Also, to provide the community with the highest quality of protection, all firefighters are required to become nationally certified in FF I and II and hold a Hazardous Materials Technician certification. There are numerous personnel also certified in confined space rescue, high angle rescue, water rescue, and trench rescue.
The Mountain Home Fire Department currently has a roster of 10 paid per call "volunteer" firefighters. The volunteers are a major part of the department, and work side by side the career guys at major incidents inside the city and assist with fire calls outside of the city along with off-duty personnel. We have a joint training meeting, career/volunteer, twice a month so the volunteers are up to date with any new procedures in the department, and to get familiar with new equipment.
