Throughout the year, these volunteers respond from their homes or place of work to the station and from the station to the scene of the incident or emergency. The chief or duty officer on call responds from his/her home directly to the scene to allow for a quick assessment of the emergency and to advise what resources are needed for the incident.
The Department intends to serve and protect the community of Sturgis, Meade County, South Dakota, and its surrounding area to the best of its ability in regard to fire, rescue, and hazard mitigation.
