DCFD is continuously recruiting volunteers who are willing to make a serious commitment to serving their community. The Department operates eight class A pumpers, three pumper/tanker combinations, one mini-pumper, one 2,500 gallon tanker, one equipment/First Response vehicle and a vehicle rescue unit and has an ISO rating of 6/6X/9.
