Thank you for taking time to visit our page. I hope you find our site useful and informative.

We are staffed with a paid Fire Chief and a corps of highly dedicated volunteers. If you are interested in volunteering with Jemison Fire/Rescue, please send us a message or visit the fire station located at 191 Main Street.

The mission of Jemison Fire/Rescue is to preserve life and property for all people who may live, work, or come into our city for any reason, therefore enhancing the quality of life for our community.

We accomplish this mission through the highest standards of integrity, professionalism, and continual education. We adhere to our motto of “Professionalism, Pride, and Progress” by working with the community to move Jemison forward by keeping abreast of the latest training, innovations, and technology.

We meet our mission by providing: Fire Prevention, Public Education, Fire Suppression, Emergency Medical Services, Incident Mitigation, and Community Relations.

We have a Fire Exploring Program, through Learning for Life, a division of the Boy Scouts of America, where young people ages 14 – 21 who are interested in the Fire and Emergency Medical Services have an opportunity to learn all aspects of these services, allowing them to make informed decisions as an adult regarding career choices. Anyone interested in the Exploring Program may send us a message or visit the fire station for more information.

Greetings:
My sister, Susy Hernandez Glasscock, passed away in the early morning hours of 08/31/2012 and left a big void in the heart of many.  Not only family members but of thousands of lives she touched through 25 years of teaching, most in Jemison and being a resident of Jemison for as long as I can remember.

Although not clear as to not ask questions to the family to make them relive the scenario as they are hurting enough, I wanted to take the time to write to all of you who were present and helped with the call that night when placed by her husband.  I know you are a volunteer department and that makes it even more important to give you thanks for volunteering your time, efforts and skills in the hopes of saving  lives.

Unfortunately Susy’s could not be saved but my husband and I will be forever grateful for the answer to the call when made and for your efforts.  It in no way reflects bad on your department, quite the contrary.  You are a group of unselfish men and women who give of yourselves on a daily basis to those in peril.

I will be sending a donation to the department in memory of Susy to the attention of Bobby Tucker with whom I spoke with a short time ago.  I don’t know what you can put the funds toward as because of the economy it will not be large, but on anniversaries and holidays I will continue to do this in her memory and maybe it will add up enough to get some needed equipment that may can be used for someone else or in the manner your department thinks it will benefit the most from.

Although I don’t know any of you personally, we give you a heartfelt thanks for responding to the call that you willfully do without pay.  May God bless each of you and keep you safe and should any of you ever need the services, I pray that the local paramedics (EMT) wherever you are will be on ready and alert as you were.

Sincerely,
Matthew and Vivian Hernandez Thorne

Just wondering what the qualifications were for the Volunteer Fire Dept. and if volunteers are needed at this time. Can you email me any information I may need! Thanks.

We have forwarded your request to the Jemison Fire Chief to respond personally to your inquiry. Thank you for your interest in the Jemison Fire Department.

Was exploring the necessary requirements to become a volunteer for the Volunteer Fire Dept and Rescue Squad
