The money raised funds all aspects of the department, including its brand new brush truck that they built themselves.
"We do a lot of training. Last year we spent over $14,000 on training. We try to go to something every year...we're very fortunate for people to support us the way they do," said Chief Dan Sharron.
The volunteer fire department relies heavily on the community to support them throughout the year.
