“We see fire protection in our first responders as a key quality of life element. Poarch’s contribution has enabled adequate personnel for responses.”
—Chief Greg Willis, Wetumpka Fire Department
Wetumpka Fire Department provides services to over 20,000 residents through a combination of volunteer, part-time and full-time personnel to provide fire, EMS, and rescue services. Providing top-level fire protection for the community is costly, with about 50 percent of the budget allocated for staffing and 50 percent to equipment. The department relies on contributions to keep communities safe.
