The Lake Shore Fire District is a combination fire organization comprised of fulltime and volunteer firefighters (and EMT's) working towards the common goal of public safety .
An integral component of our organization is the Greece Lake Shore Fire Department that comprises our volunteer membership. The fire department is always seeking new memebrs and has several membership categories:
Interior Firefighter - A Firefighter that operates at structure fires and utilizes a SCBA (self contained breathing apparatus) as part of their personal protective envelope to extinguish fires and rescue victims.
Exterior Firefighter - A Firefighter that provides support to Interior Firefighters through deployment of hose, placement of ladders, and other essential fire ground tasks.
Fire Police - A person trained to provide safety at scenes for both emergency personnel and the public. This group will direct traffic at emergency scenes to provide a protected area for emergency responders.
Water Rescue Personnel - This group provides water and ice rescue through the use of our two rescue boats and responds to water based emergencies.
Fire Department Auxiliary - A group of individuals that support the fire department at emergency scenes and department events through planning and assistance.
The fire department is seeking potential members to assist our mission of service to others. All membership categories require a significant time commitment. All members are required to attend mandatory training and meetings as required by the district and department.
Training is conducted weekly on Wednesday evenings with additional training offered some Saturday mornings.
The fire department business meeting is conduced monthly on the first Wednesday of each month.
All Interior and Exterior Firefighters are required to attend local and state level fire training. Interior Firefighters attend approximately 200 hours of training (aside from weekly training) in their first year. Exterior Firefighters attend approximately 150 hours of training (aside from weekly training) in their first year).
Fire Police and Water Rescue personnel also attend local and state training in their first year. The initial training is approximately 50 hours and members of these groups also attend monthly training.
