The Town of Peralta Fire Department is composed of volunteers who perform fire suppression and other related emergency services for our local jurisdiction, 24/7.
The Fire Department has been serving the community of Peralta for many years prior to incorporation in 2007.
Volunteer firefighters go through the same training as career personnel do. When volunteers join a department they commit themselves to obtaining training in all aspects of fire protection, which amounts to many years of continual training on the latest most up to date techniques in fire protection. All of this is done by volunteers without the benefit of a compensation schedule other that the gratitude from the communities they will serve.
